University of Cincinnati New Health Sciences Building
The University of Cincinnati is improving its facilities for the education of students in the College of Allied Health Sciences with the design and construction of a new Health Sciences Building on its Cincinnati campus. The new facility is designed to upgrade the university's roster of facilities, classroom space and labs to train the next generation of students enrolled in Academic Health Center colleges. As part of these upgrades the existing Wherry Hall, which opened in 1959 as expanded laboratories for the College of Medicine, will be demolished and a new a four-story, 110,000 square foot building consisting of classrooms, labs and offices will rise in its place. Classrooms will be located throughout the building, with labs in the south wing and offices primarily in the north wing.
Working closely with Moody Nolan Architects, EMH&T is providing a complete site demolition package for the removal of the existing Wherry Hall followed by a preliminary site design package. The project is slated for LEED Silver certification and EMH&T is coordinating with the architect and other project consultants to provide the civil engineering and administrative services necessary to obtain this LEED Silver rating from the USGBC.
