MHAworks provided design services for the $9 million complete recreation of the building, transforming its space into a 21st century teaching and research facility. Originally completed in 1972, the three-story facility is now the home of the College of Health and Human Performance. The building includes new research labs capable of sustaining bio-safety ratings up to BSL3, several arrangements of teaching labs containing state-of-the-art low flow hoods and customized storage systems, and three auditoriums, each capable of the best current technology, acoustics and seating for distance learning functions. With individual offices, work rooms, and conference rooms for the more-than-80-member department staff, the new design encourages interaction between faculty and students. Graduate student areas are arranged for collaborative research, as well as one-on-one consultation.
