High Point University: Congdon School of Health Sciences and the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy
The Congdon School of Health Science and the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy is a 220,000-square-foot health care education facility includes a musculoskeletal lab/classroom, a biomechanics lab, a wet lab, a 370-seat tiered auditorium and more.
High Point University established the Congdon School of Health Science and the Fred Wilson School of Pharmacy as part of a vision to transform a 90-acre campus into one of the finest institutions in the world. Accordingly, the building and its systems are forward thinking, creating an innovative, energy-efficient educational setting for the future.
The holistic design of the building’s engineered systems incorporates radiant cooling panels, glycol run-around loops, wrap-around heat pipes, process chilled water loop, occupancy-sensor airflow control, a multi-compressor VFD-driven chiller package, extensive LED lighting, air sampling smoke detection, building-level environmental monitoring system, and occupant-level touchscreen HVAC controls.
The new 220,000 square foot health care education facility includes a musculoskeletal lab/classroom, a biomechanics lab, a wet lab, a 370-seat tiered auditorium, a licensed pharmacy lab, a gait/motion analysis lab, a neuroscience lab, a physical exam skills lab, a clinical skills lab, eight problem-based learning rooms, conference rooms, faculty labs, an 1,800 sf life sciences lab, a gross anatomy lab, a fresh tissue lab, and related support spaces. Also included in the facility are a critical care simulation room, an emergency simulation room, adult pediatric simulation room, eight simulation exam rooms, an operating simulation room, and a labor and delivery simulation room. The project marks single largest investment in the University’s history.
