The Mary Morton Parsons Clinical Simulation Learning Center (CSLC) initiated this renovation project to elevate its provision of an advanced, realistic clinical learning environment. This expansion increases access for students and healthcare professionals to essential training resources, accommodating more learners each day.
As prime consultant on this term contract project, 2RW provided MEP engineering design for the renovation of the 2nd and 3rd floors of McLeod Hall. The design was focused on ensuring a seamless and functional integration of the simulation technology with the existing infrastructure. Special attention was given to the creation of realistic clinical environments, necessitating precise MEP configurations. This initiative was undertaken to enhance the learning environment for nursing students, focusing on practical and experiential learning methodologies.
The project utilized cutting-edge technology and experiential learning strategies. This included the installation of advanced simulation equipment and the integration of smart systems for monitoring and control, all supported by robust MEP infrastructure. 2RW collaborated with the University’s educational experts, ensuring that the MEP design aligned with the pedagogical goals of the nursing school. This collaboration was instrumental in creating an environment conducive to the latest nursing education practices.
