High performance design supports the future of science, research, and transdisciplinary learning.
The modular and flexible plan allows the program and space to evolve over time and provides a diversity of teaching spaces for collaborative learning.
The building is hub for training the next generation of caregivers, with spaces that break down boundaries between medical disciplines and encourage the exchange of ideas.
High Performance Design
The building appears as a monolithic concrete structure but conceals a multitude of energy-conserving systems and measures, including double slabs, structural thermal isolators, and insulated precast concrete panels. Triple silver glazing and a vertical Brise-soleil control solar heat gain while preserving natural light and views.
Cutting -edge design, natural daylighting, high-performance construction, exposed natural materials, and clear organization combine to provide the University with a LEED Gold facility that promotes education, healthy living, and an exciting new home for the College of Health Sciences.
A hub for training
The building is not only a hub for learning and training, it also serves the public and local community through its clinic and acts as a beacon for UC’s personalized outreach programs within the greater Cincinnati region.
