July 9 Program
LEED Tour: St. Louis Community College Center for Nursing and Health Sciences

Our Annual Green Building Tour will feature St. Louis Community College’s new Center for Nursing and Health Sciences Facility which is seeking LEED certification under the v4 rating system.

Located on the College’s Forest Park campus, this 96,000 square feet building will serve as a state-of-the-art learning center featuring science laboratories and classrooms, dental clinics, and innovative classrooms spaces.  The Center will serve approximately 900 students in nursing and health sciences programs and will be the first new academic building constructed on the Forest Park campus in nearly 20 years.  The design team (KAI) carefully integrated the old with the new, referencing the existing buildings in masonry detail, while incorporating curtainwall, storefront, metal, and technology to tie past to present.  The design capitalizes on surrounding density and diverse uses, water use reduction, optimization of energy performance, and open space, among other items.  The construction focus is on materials and resources and indoor environmental quality. 

Submitted for approval of 1 LEED Specific BD+C GBCI CE Hour and 1 AIA LU

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
