Design Achievement - EVIT's Health Sciences Center trains and equips students for careers in emergency medical training, nursing, health sciences, massage therapy, and medical and dental assisting. DLR Group's design complements the existing Health Science Building and creates classrooms adaptable to the changing functional needs of EVIT in a sustainable and inviting environment. Flexible classroom and simulation workspaces allow EVIT and students to always be on the cutting edge of the healthcare industry - easily adaptable to changes in programming and curriculum.
Scope Summary - The 69,000 SF addition to the existing EVIT Mesa campus provides enhanced opportunities in the medical and sciences fields. The school was designed around technology to strengthen curriculum and opportunities to learn, including on-site photovoltaics and rainwater harvesting tanks for students to observe sustainable design in action. The resulting energy efficient and inviting environment also meets the criteria for a LEED Silver certification. Designed completely using building information modeling (BIM) technology, the facility was completed more than a month ahead of schedule and half a million dollars under budget. DLR Group provided architecture, engineering, and interior design services.
