Jackson State Community College Nursing Building
TLM was selected by the Tennessee Board of Regents to complete the planning and design for the new nursing classroom building at Jackson State Community College.
Completed in the late summer of 2015, the facility opened for classes that fall. The facility includes six simulation lab hospital rooms which allow the students to learn how to react in real life emergencies. The building also has lecture halls, skills labs, student lounges, small group rooms, computer labs and a large conference room to be utilized by the entire campus. The building was carefully designed as it will be the new face of Jackson State, beginning the campus transformation.
All materials were selected to create a new, fresh appearance to a campus that otherwise has not changed much since the 1980’s. Expansive views with ample daylighting were key components of the design of the building.
Floor to ceiling curtain walls allow for the outdoors to flow directly into the lobby, which serves as the main study area for students.
