VT Venture Out


Project Size: 4,806 SF


TKA was engaged to provide a new signature facility for Virginia Tech Venture Out. Designed around a new indoor bouldering wall, the new facility includes a complete renovation and repurposing of an existing storage and maintenance shed with a new addition including the bouldering wall and program support spaces. Students use the facility to plan outdoor adventure recreation trips, team building activities, and store and pick up rental gear for their next adventure.


The exterior blends a mix of iconic Hokie Stone and fiber cement panels to complement the existing material pallet of the Virginia Tech campus.
