Project profile: Arizona State University Student Health Services
The 34,000-square-foot Arizona State University Health Services Building (ASU HSB) is an adaptive reuse project that transformed the existing sterile and inefficient health clinic into a clearly organized, efficient, and welcoming facility. The design imbues the new facility with a sense of health and wellness that leverages Tempe’s natural environment and contributes to a more cohesive pedestrian-oriented campus. The renovated facility, the new wing, and the entrance pavilion energize the surrounding campus by engaging the historic Palm Walk—the campus’s main pedestrian spine. The project entailed the demolition of approximately 15,000 square feet of inefficient single-story facility, the renovation of 14,000 square feet of existing two-story structure containing administrative support, labs, wellness programs, and the addition of a new 20,000-square-foot two-story wing containing campus health clinics. In terms of both energy and campus engagement, the design transformed the existing underperforming health facility into an engaging and vibrant facility that is one of the best energy performers on campus as evidenced by ASU’s Campus Metabolism, an interactive web tool tracking real-time resource use.
