Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College Health Science & Nursing Building

Orangeburg, SC

This new two-story 32,669 SF facility for a higher education health science and nursing education program illustrates both the art and science of the nursing profession. Program spaces, massing, and materials celebrate each element. The client needed state-of-the-art facilities for its expanding nursing program. The college also requested a gracious lobby and pre-function space for a 200 seat auditorium which can host the college as well as community events. This lobby spills out onto a courtyard which blends nature both inside and outside the building creating a collaborative working environment. The high tech building materials simulate the high tech healthcare industry while also blending back into the existing campus fabric. The site work includes the associated parking for the added building on campus. The sustainability goal for the project is Two Green Globes Certified.
