Nursing and Health Innovation - Phase II

Building Information

U.S. Green Building Council LEED Gold emblemThe five-story, 88,934 square-foot facility provides five new classrooms for nursing students. The building also serves as a northern gateway to ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus. Located at Third and Fillmore streets, the modern glass and copper structure includes a 200-seat auditorium, student facilities and faculty office and research space. The building includes sustainable elements and was awarded Silver LEED certification from the United States Green Building Council.

Public spaces incorporated throughout the design create green areas such as gardens at Fillmore and Third Street and a shaded plaza between the new and existing building. The main lobby reaches two stories high and is overlooked by a student lounge and conference space. Outdoor balconies on the south and west sides create comfortable outdoor environments for students, staff and faculty.

The building skin is designed to maximize daylight inside while providing protection from the sun. Shading devices block direct sun from windows on the south, east and west facades while the north facade is fully glazed to allow maximum penetration of daylight into office and research space.

The City of Phoenix and ASU partnered to build the campus and the new nursing building as part of a $223 million City of Phoenix bond that passed in 2006. The building was completed fall of 2009.
