This $52,862,000 project constructs a new 166,348 GSF building to house instructional, research and support services for the UW School of Nursing. The building replaces 54,100 ASF currently occupied by the School of Nursing within the Clinical Science Center (CSC). Space in the CSC vacated by Nursing, will be backfilled by UW Hospital and Clinics (UWHC). The new facility includes classrooms, clinical simulation laboratories, research space, and office space for the school’s students, faculty and staff and is located south of the UW School of Pharmacy.

A total of 13 bus stops are located within a quarter mile of the building site of Signe Skott Cooper Hall which promotes the use of public transportation. The site also includes multiple bike racks that will accommodate up to 210 bikes.
To avoid negative impacts on the atmosphere and conserve energy, ozone-depleting CFC-based refrigerants will not be used within the building and at least 35% of the building’s energy supply is renewable from sources such as wind, solar, and landfill gas energy.
Indoor environmental quality were supplemented by the use of low-emitting paints, sealants, adhesives, carpets, and furnishings. Additionally, smoking is prohibited outside the building entrances.
A vegetative green roof aids in absorbing rainwater and reducing the heat island effect. Special methods and practices were implemented in construction to minimize noise and vibration which could negatively impact research and hospital patients located near the construction site.
