UML Health & Social Sciences
After completing a master plan for the South Campus, C7A was retained by DCAMM and UMass Lowell to design a new Health and Social Sciences Building, the first new building on the South Campus in more than 30 years. This 70,000 sf building, designed to meet LEED Silver Plus Standards, houses three academic departments for Nursing, Psychology and Criminal Justice and seven general purpose classrooms for use by all departments. It is designed around a large, rooftop glazed atrium space that introduces natural daylight into the center of the building and creates a large lobby on the ground floor to be used for special functions. Informal gathering spaces for faculty and student collaboration are provided on all department floors as well as the building’s tree-canopied landscaped plaza.
