Nearly forty years old,
McLeod Hall was the central facility for the School of
Nursing until the opening of the new Claude Moore
Nursing Education Building last year.
McLeod Hall consists of five core floors of offices and
classrooms, two underground parking levels, and an
auditorium. (The area of each core floor is 10,000 gsf.)
The goal of this project was to renovate the five core floors
in two phases: Phase I the first, fourth and fifth floors; Phase
II the second and third floors. The phasing was based on the
priorities of the School and the funding
that was available.
A detailed programming study and an infrastructure assessment were
completed and used as the basis for design of the renovation.
The programming study determined the space requirements
and the optimal locations for the classrooms, simulations labs,
faculty and staff offices, and the various research
centers located in McLeod. The infrastructure assessment
evaluated building wide systems such as air and
electrical distribution. Deficiencies were addressed
both by this project and by on-going Maintenance Reserve
Phase II of the project is on hold pending funding.
