Project

The building will also include a home environment simulation lab for emergency response practice, an academic conference center with a flexible layout, small spaces for individual or group work, simulated exam and hospital patient rooms and a cross-discipline simulation lab designed to reflect emergency rooms. These spaces will be technologically advanced with computer controlled mannequins that mimic patient conditions. The common spaces in the building were designed to get views of the exterior and become areas for personal relaxation and group activities. The furniture in these spaces encouraged flexible layouts for these activities.

Scope

Furniture, Fixtures + Equipment

KPN Architects worked closely with Maryland Correctional Enterprises (MCE) to manufacture standardized and custom furniture for the academic, office and lab spaces. Test fitting the layouts were critical to ensure access and clearances in complex arrangements of furniture and equipment without compromising efficiency and function in these spaces. KPN Architects is currently working with the College to review purchase orders and the specifications and bill of quantities prepared by MCE. KPN will also support the College through the installation phase to ensure the design goals were followed all the way through occupancy of the building.
