Ohio University will begin construction in summer of 2019 on a $65 million academic facility for the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens. Designed by Perkins+Will and DesignGroup, the three-story, 120,000-sf building will provide flexible and collaborative learning environments to support team-based medical education programs. The project includes construction of a fourth-floor mechanical penthouse and renovation of an adjacent building to house administrative offices. Designed to accommodate the school's Pathways to Health and Wellness curriculum, the facility is expected to attain both LEED and WELL certification. Donley's is the general contractor for the project, which is slated for completion in mid-2021.
