Minnesota State University, Mankato - Clinical Science Building

Mankato, MN | Education

Overview

To accommodate a growing healthcare studies cohort, ISG helped complete pre-design and construction documents for the new Clinical Science Building on Minnesota State University, Mankato’s (MSU) campus. After nearly 15 years of planning, the building finally opened it’s doors in 2017, and now serves as a testament to the power of multi-stakeholder collaboration and innovation. Today, the new facility serves the university’s School of Nursing and Dental.


Solution

The new building includes spacious dental and communications disorders clinics, hospital-like nursing simulation labs, and flexible-use classrooms and group spaces. There is also dedicated space for an in-house student Dental Clinic, where friends family, and community members can receive low-cost care from advancing students. WiFi projection systems support high-tech learning capabilities, and glass and windows throughout the space permeate natural light.

Additional funding from the university supported the inclusion of a 20,000 square foot basement, which now houses unused space that could potentially house additional departments in the future.

ISG also provided backfill of four academic buildings on campus to relocate new departments to vacated spaces from the completion of the new Clinical Sciences Building. Phase two backfill will accommodate new nursing administration, family consumer sciences, psychology, faculty offices, video studio, multipurpose classrooms, and student spaces.
