Allied Health - Health Science and Wellness
Arkansas Tech University has a strong heritage in providing degrees in health professions. When they outgrew their existing facility they contracted with Crafton Tull to provide full service design and documentation for a new 21,000-square-foot facility, the first two-story building on the campus. The Health Science and Wellness building houses expanded programs for practical nursing, registered nursing, health information technology, physical therapy assistant, paramedic/ Emergency Medical Services with classrooms, conference rooms, faculty offices and a fitness center.
With the goal to provide a supportive and inspiring environment for both students and faculty in mind, the design of this new signature building blends existing campus vocabulary with new precision materials to establish a refreshed vocabulary for the campus. The building incorporates highly adaptable labs, classrooms, and common areas able to be reconfigured quickly, accommodating the maximum number of programs within a building envelope that is appropriately sized for the campus.
