InterProfessional Education and Care Building

Duke University • Durham, North Carolina

A Five-Story Building Fostering Connections Between the Medical and Nursing Schools

Among the nation’s top academic programs in healthcare, Duke University set new standards in collaboration and interdisciplinary studies with the opening of the new InterProfessional Education and Care Building. The 104,500-square-foot building not only helps link academic and clinical missions, it also fosters creative connections between the university’s acclaimed medical and nursing programs.

The building, which adjoins the existing nursing facilities (the Pearson Building) via a three-story pedestrian bridge, supports expanded research programs and partnerships across various healthcare disciplines. The building houses the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Doctor of Physical Therapy program and provides more space for the School of Nursing. Mueller’s scope of work for the project, designed to LEED® Gold specifications, included HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection services.
