Project Summary

The Student Health and Wellness Building New Construction Project is proposed as a one-story building with a basement. The ground floor will be approximately 54,765 gross square feet that will serve as offices for multiple divisions of UA Student Life including the Counseling Center, Collegiate Recovery and Intervention Services, Health Promotion and Wellness, and the Women and Gender Resource Center. The construction of a new building dedicated to Student Wellness and Wellbeing promotes the importance of serving students holistically while on campus.

A lower level will include approximately 35,620 gsf and is proposed to house a district storm shelter with the capacity for 1,500 people to support master planned residential facilities in the area. A single storm shelter for the area is more economical as it would eliminate the need for parallel and redundant emergency generators and support infrastructure at individual facilities. It is also more economical to construct the storm shelter in a one-story facility than embedded within a high rise due to stringent structural considerations.

A district thermal energy plant that will also provide chilled water for the Student Health and Wellness Building, University Hall and future facilities in the surrounding area. Mechanical space from the main floor will potentially be relocated to the lower level to better serve the facility. Given the close proximity of existing and planned facilities and the energy demand density, a district plant with water cooled chillers is much more economical than individual cooling infrastructure at each facility.

Long lead items will be Owner Purchased Contractor Installed to mitigate the effect of continued supply chain challenges. The long lead items the project intends to purchase will be electrical equipment, a generator, chillers and cooling towers.
