Join us for a tour of the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center on October 18!
The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center is a multiphase project that advances Framework 2.0, the university’s long-term planning vision. The $155.9 million project includes a 120,000 square-foot renovation of Hamilton Hall and construction of a new 100,000 square-foot building featuring flexible facilities to serve multiple disciplines. The building will provide upgraded and flexible facilities to create a collaborative campus for interprofessional education throughout the Health Sciences. The project is poised to benefit colleges, including medicine, dentistry, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, public health, and veterinary medicine, and strengthen the interdisciplinary curriculum of Ohio State. The project will demolish portions of Starling Loving and Fry Bridge to allow a new building along 10th Avenue that creates a quadrangle featuring green space.
The project is being built in 3 Phases.
Phase 1 – Anatomy Labs and Morgue
Phase 2 – Classrooms
Phase 3 – Administrative Offices, Classrooms and Public Spaces
Phase 1 is complete and currently in use. Phase 2 and Phase 3 are under construction.
One of the most interesting and challenging features of this project is that it is both a new build and a renovation of a historic 100 year old building. The construction is at a stage where it allows a rare peak into the original construction of Hamilton Hall and the design plans to restore and extend its architectural heritage.
Robert A. M. Stern Architects and Acock Associates Architects are the architects for the project.
PPE is required for tour attendees: hard hat, vest, closed-toe shoes, protective eye wear
