Cedar Valley College- Science & Veterinary Technology Building (LEED-NC Gold)

Cedar Valley College- Science & Veterinary Technology Building (LEED-NC Gold)


Location: Lancaster, TX
Client: Turner Construction

Dallas County Community College District selected HOK to design a new, ground-up 110,000 GSF Science/Vet Tech/Allied Health Center for their Cedar Valley College campus, housing health labs, classrooms, vet labs. This is a LEED-NC Gold Certified Building.

The functional program for the S/VT/AHC identified science laboratories, lecture halls, healthcare training facilities, spaces necessary to support comprehensive Veterinary Technology training, plus a major Outdoor Education Center (OEC) to support Archeology, Geology and Environmental science programs.

HOK designed three standard lab modules of increasing size with flexible interior layouts to support the facility’s science mission in Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Astronomy, Forensics, Environmental Science, Archeology, and Geology.

The design’s exterior materials recall the brick and curtain-wall vocabulary of the overall campus, but promote a lighter and more open envelope suited to the overall sustainable design incorporating daylight, shading, reduced infiltration and recycled content.
