Hoefer Welker, an interdisciplinary architecture and design firm, has completed the design for the five-story, 95,000-square-foot Northland Innovation Center (NIC), an urban, vertical education campus designed to advance learning for students from kindergarten through post-secondary education. Completed in August 2017, the $20M design-build project was funded by a public-private partnership with developer CBC Real Estate Group, North Kansas City School District and Northwest Missouri State University (NWMSU). The new five-acre campus is located in Gladstone, Missouri.
“I wanted to see a school that didn’t look or feel like a traditional school,” says Dr. Todd White, superintendent of North Kansas City School District. “This is a place to prepare future CEOs and innovators.”
