Phase 4 – Graduate Building
Adventist University of Health Sciences
Adventist University of Health Sciences Phase 4 culminates the master plan for the Campus, distinguished by a unique peninsula site, all buildings designed by HuntonBrady.
The 3-story, 55,000 GSF structure consists of a cast in place concrete frame with architectural precast and aluminum curtain wall skin. This academic health sciences building houses a multi-purpose assembly space with seating for 300; registrar and enrollment services; multi-disciplinary simulation labs; classrooms; and faculty administration offices. Academic programs include Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician’s Assistant, and Nurse Anesthesia. The simulated operating room is intended to be shared with the hospital.
The project challenges included tight site constraints as the result of lake and hospital setbacks and adjacent helipad. The curvilinear shape is a result of the curved extension of the adjacent Phase 3 Building, thus linking the two buildings to form a single composition. The building is designed for future vertical expansion to (5) stories.
