Due to significant enrollment increases in Newman University’s science, allied health, and nursing programs, a new building is being designed to offer state-of-the-art classrooms, clinical learning and gross anatomy spaces, and chemistry, biology, and physics laboratories. The new facility is connected to the existing Eck Hall which now houses Newman’s nursing and allied health programs.

Project highlights:

  • The general air handling units will be draw-thru type with 30% efficient pre-filters and 85% efficient filters, outdoor air economizer, air blender, and heating and cooling coils.
  • The laboratories will be provided with chemical resistant waste and vent system separate from the general use sanitary system. Lab gases consist of compressed air, vacuum, and natural gas.
  • The lab gas system includes a complete piping system, central equipment, and user outlets.
  • Packaged automatic water softeners, reverse osmosis, and deionizers with pre and final filters will be provided for the clean water source for the laboratories.
