130,000 SF facility reconstruction completed in multiple phases
The Byron and Sandra Sadler Health Science Building is an 88,000 SF, two-level concrete structure with precast and curtainwall skin. The site features extensive hardscaping in an architectural courtyard. The building structure features a suspended second level above the ground level courtyard. The complex includes classrooms, administrative offices, laboratories for teaching life and physical sciences, laboratories for continuing education and distance learning, and a nurse simulation area with skills laboratories for the health professions department. The life and physical science laboratories contain a high purity water system, compress and laboratory gas systems, and fume hoods. The nurse simulation area includes four simulation rooms. Each room is set-up with a Laerdal Medical 'SimCenter' and patient simulator (SimMan) which will provide students with realistic patient care simulations.
