New Innovation Hub Classroom Building
Fremont Union High School District
- Completion Date: March 2019
- Square Footage: 25,060 (New Construction)
- Final Construction Cost: $16.9M
The new 25,000 square foot Innovation Hub provides collaborative spaces for programs including visual arts, business, computer science, robotics and shop to serve the school’s more than 2,000 students. The Innovation Hub replaces a previously underutilized shop building with a new classroom building that consolidates various programs from across the campus in a central location, allowing for interdisciplinary study and collaboration between programs. Connecting all programs together is a large central hub, a flexible space used for collaboration, circulation, presentations, and display of student work. All spaces were designed to meet the District’s current needs, while also being flexible enough to evolve over time to address future program changes.
Additionally, the Innovation Hub creates a new point of entry to the campus and athletic fields, creating a welcoming face for the school along busy Homestead Road. The new building is connected to the rest of the campus through a plaza used for outdoor learning, studying and socializing.
