Health Education Campus
Talk to our experts
The Health Education Campus is a medical university building housing four different schools: CWRU School of Dental Medicine, CWRU Nursing School, CWRU Medical School and The Lerner School of Medicine. These schools each have their own unique spaces (i.e. lecture halls, classrooms, labs, meeting rooms, conference rooms and staff lounges) placed around the edge of the rectangular building. The building provides large flexible study areas and a central, 27,000 sf ground floor, glass roof, four-story atrium and courtyard.
The exterior of the building is predominantly window wall, the atrium space is enclosed by a large open-trussed skylight roof system, two mechanical penthouses are located on the roof, and the perimeter of the roof has a large metal panel clad overhang.
As part of the team, SOCOTEC provided exterior wall, roofing, and waterproofing services. SOCOTEC also led the Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) initiative with the ultimate aim to achieve a LEED Silver status. The BECx process ensures quality assurance and quality control of the enclosure systems throughout the design, construction, and initial occupation phases. Through the establishment of Owner’s Project Requirements and the technical review of systems’ design, fabrication, installation, and testing, SOCOTEC contributed to the realization of the Health Education Campus. Our final BECx report summarizes the Commissioning Plan execution, recommends further action for open issues, and outlines remaining closeout documents.
