Lone Star College-Kingwood will enhance education while creating a new identity through the design and construction of four major projects.

 

New Student and Conference Center

The New Student and Conference Center will consolidate all the student services for existing and new students in one building. The location was chosen for its prominent location at the campus main entrance (just north of parking lot A off Woodpoint Drive) and will act as the “front door,” welcoming students, faculty and visitors while composing a new campus image. A new Satellite Utility Plant (S.U.P.) will be constructed adjacent to the New Student and Conference Center and near the Arts & Instructional Building, serving the mechanical and electrical needs of the two new buildings, while allowing extra square footage to accommodate future growth on the east side of campus.

Arts and Instructional Building

The Arts and Instructional Building, new home for the Music Department, will create a new campus quad to encourage collaborative and informal meetings between students of all disciplines, and faculty. The Arts and Instructional Building is considered phase one of the full venue and will provide the Music department's teaching, rehearsal, practice, and faculty office needs. It will also house a new 100 seat Recital Hall, which will provide a new opportunity for the campus to join with local organizations to promote music and arts in the Kingwood Community. Phase two includes a new 1000 seat Concert Hall adjacent to the Music Department’s building.

Student Center/Fine Arts Building Renovation

The existing Student Fine Arts Building will be vacated by the Music Department and Student Services providing an opportunity to renovate and update the facility to add more general teaching classrooms and open office faculty suites. In addition, the Drama department will expand its teaching abilities, including updates to the existing theatre, greater storage and scene shop workroom capacity, and a new Black Box Theatre. These renovations plus updates to the existing drama classrooms will allow the faculty to provide a safe and productive teaching environment for the performing arts.

Traffic Infrastructure Modifications

The fourth major design and construction project on the Kingwood campus includes major modifications to the campus traffic infrastructure and allows for an onsite water detention pond required by the City of Houston. Approximately three hundred fifty (350) new parking spaces will be created amongst the large trees on campus. The parking lot will also complete the internal traffic loop allowing students and faculty to travel across campus without having to traverse busy city roadways. A new grassy median will be created on Woodpoint Drive to create a more formal and safer campus entrance. Special rain garden vegetation will be planted around the detention pond to create a pleasing landscaping element on campus.
