Southwest Community College is building a $20 million health sciences building in Sylva, N.C. Designed by LS3P, the 55,000-sf facility will accommodate programs including nursing, occupational therapy, emergency medical science, medical sonography, surgical technology, opticianry, radiology, and speech-language pathology. The collaborative three-story building will provide technology-rich simulation training suites, teaching labs, classrooms, offices, and support spaces. The Christman Company is the general contractor for the project, which is sited between two existing buildings. Ground was broken on the facility in May of 2019 and completion is expected in 2021.
