Health and Human Services Building

Terre Haute, Indiana

Indiana State University
185,000 SF

A four-story, 85,000 SF addition serves as the hub of health promotion and social wellness for the Indiana State University campus community and Wabash Valley residents, including program specialties such as an outpatient clinic, a biomechanics center, exercise physiology lab, therapeutic and neuro labs, applied health science and motor skills lab, physical education and training, faculty offices, graduate research suite, dean’s office, and a wellness garden courtyard.

The second phase, 100,000 SF renovation highlights the complete rehabilitation of the university’s aquatic and hydrotherapy pool, expands the existing 200-meter indoor track into a regulation 8-lane competition venue, and showcases two 150-person tiered lecture halls alongside a nursing simulation suite and nursing skills lab.

The resulting facility cultivates an environment of community engagement, student fellowship & growth, social wellness, and continual change. All new energy efficient mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems help bring this once-dated campus facility to the forefront of sustainable building examples on campus and in the surrounding community.
