The Cleveland Play House/Cleveland State University (CPH/CSU) Drama and Visual Arts Center at Playhouse Square is at the heart of Cleveland’s downtown theater district. The new center located in an historic building will create a collaborative environment bringing programs for CSU and CPH. These programs will work in conjunction and support the nearby Allen Theater expansion which contains a newly renovated Allen Theater plus two new stages for theater production.

Middough provided full services for programming through construction administration of this exciting and fast tracked project. The program includes CPH administrative offices, Case Western Reserve University studio and offices, CSU dance and drama, and art department offices, and classrooms for art education, art history, graphic design, photography and printmaking, a scene shop, drawing and painting studios, wardrobe, costume shop, rehearsal and dance studios.

Wanting to be a leader in fuel cell education has paid off for Stark State when they selected Middough to design their new 25,000 SF research and development center at a cost of $4.7 million.

Middough coupled its architecture expertise and process engineering to create a cost effective     one-of-a-kind facility with laboratories, clean rooms, demonstration and prototype assembly areas.

Stark State has leveraged their new facility to develop more than $18 million in grants from partnerships with business and industry, and state and local government to expand fuel cell curricula, support industry research and development, and prepare technicians for the emerging field.

The emerging sciences of nanotechnology initiated the demand for a new, 50,000 SF state-of-the-art Materials Research Institute, to serve an international research community.

Middough began with a focus on creating a new image for the Center for Nanotech Education and Utilization (CNEU) through entrance and public space remodeling and updating research technology with a new class 10,000 cleanroom which included an attendant support area.

In support of the University´s expansion south of the Midway and west of Drexel Avenue, Middough evaluated existing distribution infrastructure condition and capacity against future demand loads for steam, chilled water electricity and storm water systems.

Development of the utilities master plan led to multiple system expansions and connecting buildings to the main system.

The University´s need to couple green energy solutions with increasing campus utility requirements led to rebuilding the Charter Street Power Plant.
 
Utilizing renewable biomass as the primary energy source for the plant has fundamentally changed the fuel cell handling system, which led to new boiler technologies with capacities as high as 350,000 lb/hr with total new capacity of 750,000 lb/hr, and electricity generation in excess of         25 MW.

Integrating the new systems into the University campus, residential and business community with minimal impact has been the greatest challenge.
