Tri-C Health Careers & Technology Building
The Cuyahoga Community College Health Careers and Technology Center is the new construction of 63,000 SF of classroom, auditorium, and training space designed to provide training and instruction to health care professionals in Northeast Ohio. The facility contains state of the art audio, visual, and communication capabilities.
The project is LEED Registered with an environmental sustainability goal of LEED Silver. The plan is to achieve this rating through use of energy efficiency, rain gardens and a cistern to catch rain water for watering planter beds surrounding the building. A green roof located over the first floor is accessed directly through the second floor atrium and allows students to see firsthand some of the physical sciences taught in the classrooms inside the building. Extensive restoration of native grasses and plants further the LEED and Green Building initiatives sought by the owner.
