At the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Wash., the newly opened William T. and Gail Weyerhaeuser Center for Health and Sciences provides students and faculty with state-of-the-art technology and facilities to encourage collaboration across the sciences. Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the 42,500-sf building houses graduate clinical programs in physical therapy and occupational therapy and undergraduate programs for exercise science, psychology, and neuroscience.
The $21 million project offers a grand atrium, outdoor mobility park, six laboratories, six clinics, classrooms, and faculty offices. Geothermal heating has been employed to meet energy goals designed to achieve LEED Silver.
