Dr. Dane A. Miller Science Complex

01 Challenge

Grace College’s vision for the Dr. Dane A. Miller Science Complex was to create a modern science building that will inspire and excite students about the college’s growing science programs. The project required the renovation of the 1976 Cooley Science Center and an additional 13,000 SF of new construction.

02 Solution

A central theme throughout the project is bridging to create connections, both literally and figuratively. The upper-level bridge overlooking the two-story atrium connects the renovated labs with new labs in the addition while providing views out to the woods—strengthening the visual connection to nature and the community.

Location Winona Lake, IN

Size 36,775 SF

Completion Date 2018

For the first time in over a decade, the school utilized a different architectural firm, “taking a chance” on BHDP. Our experience was nothing short of remarkable. From start to finish, BHDP brought wonderfully talented resources to the project ... BHDP became a true partner.
