Project Description

Nursing Building
Durham, NC

The new 69,610 sf nursing building is a state-of-the-art, technology-rich facility. Multiple classroom spaces include a 225-seat auditorium, three 75-seat classrooms for distance learning and video conferencing, and student spaces for collaborative instruction. The building houses a Simulation floor with a fundamentals training room, a maternal child health training room and a multipurpose training room along with three specialized Simulation Labs with dedicated storage for simulation mannequins.

The project has high energy efficiency and provides excellent daylighting through exterior patterning of an abstract brick quilt that symbolizes the comforting nature of a nurse’s persona. This project is LEED Gold.
