Husson University Wellness and Learning Center
SMRT worked with Husson University to design their multifunction student wellness center. Currently under construction, the space will include an experiential learning area with a simulation center and lab for the university’s Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy programs, as well as a clinical area for students to seek healthcare and/or counseling services.
Designed with wellness support as a top priority, the building is located in the central campus circle, surrounded by landscaping and with views to the surrounding trees, providing direct access to nature. The clinical and educational groups share a common lobby, which is flooded by daylight and accented with a nature mural. They also share classroom space, a staff and faculty break room, and two restorative spaces labeled as Quiet Rooms, which are available to all.
The new 7,000+ sf building will replace multiple locations that currently house these services. SMRT provided complete building design including architectural design, interior design, structural, plumbing, mechanical and electrical components as well as schematic landscape design for the building.
