Barton Education provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and architectural lighting design for a new Learning Center for Health Science and Technology, formerly Pierce Hall. The state-of-the-art science and nursing facility project consist of 18,500 square-foot addition of new program space and a 30,000 square-foot renovation of the existing building’s mechanical and electrical systems. The new or renovated laboratories include a medical imaging suite, a surgical technology suite, an ultrasound suite, anatomy and physiology laboratories, chemistry and biology laboratories and a nursing simulation suite.
