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.
Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan, Inc. provided complete architectural and engineering services.
