About the Project
The ASU Student Health Services Building Expansion and Renovation project achieved LEED Platinum Certification. We evaluated the building systems for the entire facility, which was constructed in 1968, for maintenance and upgrade purposes that included mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire alarm / suppression systems.
The Campus Health Service (CHS) provides community health needs at the Health Services Building. The building includes areas for primary, specialty-consult, urgent ambulatory care, clinical laboratory, radiology, pharmacy and a complementary medicine wing. The addition/renovation separates urgent, specialty, and primary care into distinct areas plus adds a fast-track area with its own exterior access and includes a new women’s health area.
ASU, as a state agency, is required by the Arizona Revised Statutes to comply with the State Historic Preservation Act. Therefore, the design of the addition was required to comply with the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and needed to be reviewed by the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).
The primary historic preservation concern for this project was the relationship of an addition to the Alumni Lawn and the two National Register-listed properties, Old Main and the University Club to the west; and Palm Walk to the east.
