In 2012 the building design for the 78,000 sf new University of Michigan School of Nursing building were revealed.  The innovative project, by RDG Planning and Design, focused on a learning center, which would include instructional spaces, a clinical learning center with simulation and skills labs, and simulated patient areas in an environment that would encourage collaboration and community among students and staff. The School of Nursing was previously housed in a building constructed in 1913.  (Photo credit: Curt Clayton)  Seen in the Michigan Daily News 
Not only was the architectural team tasked with designing a building that would encourage and enhance learning, but also to develop a building was sustainable and with reduced energy consumption and environmental impact.  Energy efficient measures include TROX chilled beam system (DID632 and DID302), throughout the building, including offices, classrooms, auditoriums, library and common areas. DID632 and DID302 active chilled beams were installed in the building. (Photo credit: Curt Clayton)
The University of Michigan School of Nursing achieved LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.  According to the University's associate VP for facilities and operations, Mr. Hank Baier, "The building is estimated to operate at 27% energy savings as compared to a new building that simply meets current energy code and this helps minimize our environmental impact." (Photo credit: Curt Clayton)
