Project Name: UCA College of Nursing
Client: University of Central Arkansas / Conway Regional
Date of Completion: 2013
The UCA / CRH School of Nursing is a joint venture project providing training for a carrier in Nursing as well as providing continuing education to the nursing and medical staff of the hospital. This new 90,000 S.F. educational facility has been designed to foster an environment of interactive learning from within the teaming styled classrooms as well as promoting synergistic opportunities for casual interaction with medical professionals in the lobby café and the technology lounges scattered throughout the building. The teaching labs feature a complete operating room as well as individual hospital patient rooms to realistically simulate actual day to day scenarios. The transitional modern appearance to the exterior also reflects the synergy between the university and Conway Regional Hospital as it blends the best of both of these institutions architectural elements.
