AMICO Uses HeavyBid on Windsor Welcome Center

The 18,000-square-foot, two-story University of Windsor Welcome Centre in Ontario is an iconic gateway building that will house the offices for student admissions and recruitment, advancement, and alumni affairs, and a retail space selling university merchandise. This unique and exciting building will create a focal point that activates the campus, encouraging connections between the school, its history, and the surrounding community. Located at the southern edge of the campus in an area heavy in traffic of all kinds, the Welcome Centre has been designed as a dynamic pavilion that is visible from every angle and accessible from multiple campus routes. The ground floor acts as a large welcome threshold, and at the corner intersection, the entrance canopy ushers students, alumni, and visitors directly into a seductive, light-filled lobby.

What makes it interesting?

The iconic facade of the upper story provides opportunity for large-scale exterior digital projection, gathering the university community to celebrate key milestones, Orientation Week, Lancer victories, team spirit and campus entertainment.
