PWA teamed with the City of St. Joseph, the Missouri Department of Conservation and engineering and landscape design consultants to design the $4.5 million nature center that is the “crown jewel” of St. Joseph’s riverfront development.
With a design that has acheived the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold Certification, the Eco Schoolhouse has become a teaching tool, allowing students to see, touch, and learn about the building's environmental and socially sustainable components.
Within sight of similar institutions, it was essential for the branch facilities of Missouri Credit Union to stand out from the neighboring developments. The Architects at PWA were asked to accomplish this goal with an energy-efficient building that would respond to the needs of building users and visitors well into the future.
