The signature building was designed to incorporate limestone, native stone and glass to complement the architecture of nearby buildings.
The center provides classroom, research, office, clinical and meeting space for the departments previously mentioned. It will also connect to and create a unified entrance for McGurrin Hall, which houses the remaining departments in Panuska College – nursing, education, human resources, counseling and health administration – in addition to the Leahy Community Health and Family Center.
The rehabilitation center is LEED Certified.
Quandel worked with us throughout the design process to identify savings through value engineering exercises. The company was on board from the beginning of the design process and worked with the architects and engineers, as well as the university, to identify and recommend methods of construction and provide periodic cost estimates. The work allowed us to make informed decisions to keep the project on track and within budget. Quandel is a well-managed company that goes above and beyond what is contractually expected of them to provide a finished product that exceeds our expectations.
