Donley’s is providing CM at Risk services on this project—the new home for the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine—that will be the first new building on the Union Street Green of Ohio University’s Athens Campus. The three-story, 120,000 square foot facility will provide space for medical education, clinical assessment and training, student support spaces, administrative space, space for future growth, and a Learning Resource Center (including a medical library).

The building will promote “active design’ by encouraging physical activity within the building with the intent of maintaining student health and academic success. They are aiming to receive the WELL Building Standard certification, which would make the building the first medical education facility in the country to do so. The outdoor spaces will be part of the educational environment, and encourage student and staff connections to the natural environment. Classes are planned to be held here in the spring of 2021.
