PROJECT DETAILS

Kentucky’s New Educational Model 

The new Hardin County Schools Early College and Career Center (EC3) offers six career pathways for students from each of the county’s existing high schools. Creating a new educational model for Kentucky, one which “blurs the lines” between secondary and post-secondary education, EC3 through partnerships with WKU, KCTCS Elizabethtown; and Sullivan University, offers students the ability to earn significant college credits towards both associate and bachelor degrees.

Working hand-in-hand with Sullivan University’s Culinary Art’s program, Sherman Carter Barnhart designed HC3 with very specialized spaces in support of Sullivan University’s Culinary Arts program as well as the Baking & Pastry Arts program. This includes various types of kitchens for pastry and baking, gas grills, pizza ovens and deep fryers.

Supporting the kitchens are also demonstration kitchen/classrooms offering video conferencing/video link capabilities for off campus demonstrations and broadcasting at HC3. This space also serves as a multipurpose seminar and conference space with tiered theater seating for 60.

In addition to “jump starting” students’ placement in college, the facility also creates advanced career opportunities for students to enter the workforce directly from high school. Internships are also made available through Hardin Memorial Hospital, where students can earn a certification in phlebotomy, nursing, and other biomedical areas. Sherman Carter Barnhart worked closely with both educators and business leaders in Elizabethtown and Hardin County to develop a building program that supports the community’s specific needs in training students for advanced job placement following graduation.

The facility is designed to be a high performance, net zero achievable building with educational opportunities in energy conservation and environmental stewardship. The building, through its energy saving strategies, is currently operating at 24 EUI’s, saving Hardin County Schools approximately $63,000 in operating/energy costs a year.

The Louisville Metro Housing Authority and the City of Louisville will break ground Friday, March 29, on Phase I of the Beecher Terrace Revitalization. Phase I includes a single, four-story building with 117 units designed specifically for seniors.

As part of a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Choice Neighborhoods Initiative Implementation Grant, the new Beecher Terrace will be transformed into a sustainable, walkable, and amenity-rich community. When complete it will offer over 600 units of affordable housing. The buildings reflect the character of nearby neighborhoods while maintaining their heritage and identity.

The entire redevelopment is pursuing U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and USGBC Kentucky LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED ND) and Enterprise Green Community certification.

Sherman Carter Barnhart has worked with the Louisville Metro Housing Authority for over 25 years, and we are proud to be a partner with McCormack Baron Companies on the Beecher Terrace Revitalization.
