With a major focus on schedule and cost efficiency and in preparation for future construction, we worked with the design team and facility personnel to find ways to benefit this new nursing facility project and a future Health Sciences building.
The new two-story Nursing Facility on the campus of Jackson State consists of approximately 35,000 square feet. The first floor has a comfortable open entry lobby for gathering and student collaboration, two-tiered lecture rooms each holding 120 people and one classroom for 80 people. The first floor also houses two skilled labs and a full simulation suite complete with viewing and collaboration rooms for group discussion and debriefing. The second floor contains a large multi-purpose conference room. This room can be used for teacher training, large campus lectures, health care exhibition space, or community use. The remainder of the second floor consists of all Nursing faculty and staff offices, adjunct work space, computer room, conference spaces and work and break facilities.
As part of campus revitalization efforts, JSCC commissioned a new School of Nursing for their quickly growing program. This meant there was a major focus on schedule and cost efficiency as well as preparing for future construction adjacent to this site. We were able to work with the design team and campus personnel to reroute electrical, data, and storm water lines into areas that would benefit both this project and the future Health Sciences building. By looking ahead, we were able to prevent the facility from undergoing future service shutdowns as well as saving the owner money in future rework of these connections.
