Minnesota State University, Mankato - Clinical Science Building
Mankato, MN | Education
ISG completed pre-design and construction documents for the new Clinical Science Building on Minnesota State University, Mankato’s campus to bolster healthcare studies. Today, the new facility serves the university’s School of Nursing and Dental.
As Minnesota State Mankato planned to invest in its healthcare field of studies, construction of an entirely new building was needed to accommodate a growing cohort of healthcare students. This building would hold spaces for students to study practices in the nursing and dental fields.
After nearly 15 years of planning, the new Clinical Science building opened its doors in 2017.The 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. Wi-Fi 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 sq. ft. basement, which now houses unused space that could potentially house additional departments and learning spaces 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.
