Center for Health Sciences to Start at Puget Sound

University of Puget Sound began construction of the Center for Health Sciences at the south end of campus in May with general contractor GLY Construction. The 42,500-sq-ft interdisciplinary center is expected to open in time for the fall 2011 school semester.

In addition to classrooms, offices and neurology, orthopedic, pediatric and outpatient clinics, it will house a motion analysis lab, biochemistry wet lab, observation suite, exercise physiology lab and a social sciences computer lab.

The building was designed by Seattle architect Bohlin Cywinski Jackson to compliment Puget Sound’s existing Tudor-Gothic buildings, with simple gable roof forms, projecting bay windows, and the use of materials such as brick, terra cotta, copper detailing and local stone.
