Health Science Building Renovation
Lorain County Community College
At Lorain County Community College, the Health Care & Nursing (HC&N) programs occupied classrooms and labs inadequate for their needs due to lack of space, obsolete technology, and outdated finishes. The design process for this project needed to equitably address a broad constituency of academic programs, each with its own set of priorities and challenges. Spaces previously used as physical science labs required reconfiguration of casework and redistribution of services in order to accommodate Clinical Laboratory Sciences. Nursing was in desperate need of expanded lab space to accommodate a growing student body and new equipment. Diagnostic Medical Technology needed additional space for newly donated scanning units, an internal washroom, and a changing area, in addition to the ability to incorporate lecture and demonstration functions. Surgical Technology wanted a dedicated lecture/lab space to simulate an operating room environment. The Physical Therapist Assistant Program had already been updated, but still required minimal A/V and millwork additions.
