To fulfill the owner's desire to enhance a growing, vibrant downtown core with an urban building which allows for future expansion opportunities, the design-build team of DPR Construction and SmithGroup designed and constructed an emblematic icon which integrates into the surrounding campus.

Working within a tight budget, this compact, 80,000-lb. (approximately 34,000 sq. ft.) copper-clad structure provides a home to one of the largest nursing programs in the United States and serves as the campus' primary gateway on its marquee corner. The new ground-up, multi-use, 84,000-sq.-ft., 5-story facility contains classrooms, office and administrative spaces, a 200-seat conference center and a 60-seat computer classroom laboratory.
