About the Project

New 150,000 SF, six-story building housing five departments: Health Sciences, Nursing, Communication Sciences & Disorders, Social Work, and Creative Services. The new inter-professional facility is designed to prepare students for today’s team-oriented healthcare work environment and facilitates inter-professional collaboration. The building contains 16 research labs, 20 classrooms, 22 teaching labs, a community Speech and Hearing Clinic, two 165-seat lecture halls and a patient simulation lab. The research labs are designed to support faculty research provide opportunities for student research and hands-on learning.

The DMWPV team approaches every design solution with an enthusiasm and accountability that is contagious. Time after time during our collaborations with DMWPV I have been amazed at their ability to not only solve design problems but consistently offer innovative ways in doing so - all the while remaining cognizant of the client’s budget. They are a great teaming partner and I always look forward to the next opportunity to work with them!
