New facility consolidates eight campus-wide locations into one inviting interdisciplinary experience.
Embodying Southern Connecticut State University’s varied and successful teaching and research programs, the design of the new College of Health and Human Services building enhances student academic and clinical experiences and excellence, preparing them for leadership opportunities in fields dedicated to improving the physical, mental, and social well-being of individuals and communities.
Designed by Svigals + Partners with Little Diversified Architectural Consulting, the new four-story, 94,750-square-foot building consolidates the multiple departments of Southern Connecticut State University’s College of Health and Human Services program from eight campus-wide locations encompassing nearly two-dozen disciplines, uniting their academic centers, clinics, and institutes into one inviting, interdisciplinary experience.
Committed to high standards of sustainability, the project team worked to slash energy consumption by more than 33 percent and water use by 30 percent. About 75 percent of construction waste was diverted from landfills, and 20 percent of the building materials comprise recycled content. These and other measures contribute to exceeding of State of Connecticut’s High Performance Building requirements, equivalent to a minimum of LEED Silver.
