MARYVILLE UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF HEALTH PROFESSIONS
“It has been transformational, not only for the College [of Health Professions], but for the whole university.” Dr. Charles Gulas, Dean Myrtle E. and Earl E. Walker Hall College of Health Professions Maryville University
In an effort to bolster recruitment for their Healthcare Professions program, Maryville University needed a state-of-the-art lab and academic facility to continue their excellence in education and stay competitive in the region. Lamar Johnson Collaborative was charged to maintain high connectivity to the campus, while still bringing a fresh perspective for the project.
The team’s designs for the three-story, 87,000 SF facility were inspired by a unique “open collaboration” concept, promoting natural interaction among students, faculty, and staff. This innovative facility is certified LEED Silver through the use of measures such as reduced energy use, enhanced commissioning, reduced water use, and the specification of regionally harvested and recycled materials.
