The New Science/Allied Health Building is devoted to nursing and allied health-related programs. One of the major goals of this project was to integrate the new building with the existing building (which also contained nursing and allied health programs) so that the functions of both facilities could be shared. AJRC, Inc., therefore, located the new building in front of the existing building, creating a new courtyard that is used for outdoor activities.

The east end of the existing building contained the cafeteria, which was enlarged and developed into a multi-purpose atrium space off the new building’s lobby. A pedestrian bridge spans over the atrium, which ties the new and existing buildings together and allows them to function as one.

The new Health Sciences Building on the Somerset Community College, Laurel Campus opened in January 2010. The two-story, 53,000-SF structure houses the Practical Nursing, Respiratory Care, Nurse Aid Training, and Medical Assisting programs. Future programs include Pharmacy Technology and Associate Degree Nursing.

Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan, Inc. provided project management, and site design as well as complete architectural, engineering, and interior design services.

The new Equine Center at the University of Louisville is a two-story addition to the existing College of Business building that was originally built in 1985. Each level of the addition is physically connected to the existing business school, including access to the roof garden and terrace. The program consists of administrative functions, housing reception/waiting areas, work rooms, offices, and conference rooms that support the Equine program at the business school.

The design for the new Journalism/Technology Building provides a significant architectural and state-of-the-art academic landmark facility which includes, within one structure, the Information Technology/Distance Learning and Journalism Departments.

The Journalism/Technology Building is organized around two key features: an open exterior Courtyard and a three-story high interior central Atrium with a major skylight. The program also includes a 250-seat auditorium. The design provides a strong architectural statement of building purpose appropriate for such a major academic complex. The project included the construction of a clock tower, creating a campus identity element.

The design objective of this project was to build a new Residence Hall and Student Services Building for housing and training blind and handicapped students. The design required special elements, including maximized usage of natural lighting, bright colors, and textures to emphasize functional areas and to clearly define paths of circulation for normal, everyday use as well as for safe, emergency egress.
