Darlington Hall, Nursing and Allied Health Building

Bel Air, MD

The Nursing and Allied Health Building is a three-story facility comprised of laboratories, classrooms, offices, and a variety of informal collaborative student learning spaces within a central atrium. The building houses a two-year nursing program, allied health program, as well as non-credit nursing programs.

Laboratories are AV/IT intensive spaces and designed to capture simulated tasks and nurse/patient interaction. The recorded video and audio data is then accessible to students and teachers in classrooms, control rooms, observation/debrief rooms, as well as, informal learning spaces. Active learning classrooms empower students to construct their own learning in collaborative creative problem solving exercises. Informal student and group study spaces are also provided throughout the central atrium.

The building is steel framed with masonry, glass, and metal panel over metal stud walls. Air handling units and an air cooled chiller sit on top of a low slope TPO roof membrane system.
