UNC-Pembroke Health Sciences Building, New Construction, Pembroke, NC – LEED Silver Certified

A new three-story Health Sciences building broke ground at UNC-Pembroke in 2010, on the west side of Braves Drive. This 87,000 SF building houses the nursing program, biology labs, a food court and future health programs, thereby allowing the University to double the size of their nursing program. Site work for this project, located in the Lumber River watershed, consisted of clearing and grubbing of the existing wooded site and construction of the new building, parking lots, and sidewalks. CLH provided sanitary sewer study, site design, grading, utility, stormwater management, erosion control, landscape design services, LEED Certification services, and construction administration.
