To provide more office and meeting space, we designed the site work for APUS' new 45,000-square-foot academic center, as well as the 105,000-square-foot finance center. Both facilities were designed for LEED® Gold certification and support more than 100,000 online students worldwide. The academic center also houses approximately 140 faculty and staff, while the finance center houses more than 400 staff members.
