Planning, Design & Construction
The project included construction of a 33,750 SF addition which provides a new fully accessible entry for the College, clinical space for special care, endodontic and faculty practice. The expansion provides new state-of-the-art classrooms and conference space which supports the College’s vision of student focused team based education. The renovation of the building’s clinic and research spaces enhance the patient experience by increasing the size of operatories, providing greater patient privacy and improving clinical flow and wayfinding.
