Stantec provided architectural and engineering services for the expansion of the School of Dental Medicine at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. The 33,750 square foot addition will share the “podium” currently occupied by the original School of Dental Medicine and the School of Nursing.
The project will include research labs and support spaces as well as shelled space for future administrative or clinical spaces. The design also features an atrium gathering space which extends off the podium to grade creating a new feature entry to the School of Dental Medicine. The existing dental clinics beneath the podium will remain operational during the construction phase. The construction budget for the project is set at $12 million and the project will seek LEED Silver Certification.
The project encompasses approximately 150,000 square feet including an addition and extensive renovations to the existing facility. A multi-phase project, the first phase encompasses 38,000-square-feet, and consists of the construction of new research space above the existing building podium, providing much needed connections between existing clinical areas with new research and clinical space. Later phases will include upgrades to instructional areas, and will integrate a full complement of technologically advanced classrooms with advanced simulation suites.
