Mayo Clinic expanded its prestigious medical school, Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine to Scottsdale, Arizona, welcoming the location’s first class in 2017. The project, totaling 18,000 GSF, is located in the existing Administrative Support Building (ASB) with additional renovations to the adjacent Johnson Research Building (JRB), providing an additional 2,700 square feet of library and collaborative study space, and a fully renovated, 1,000 square foot, tiered lecture hall.
The 1990s ASB office building is reimagined to support an engaging and inspiring academic experience. The facility synthesizes clinical experience with team-based learning. The program includes an advanced active learning classroom, video-enhanced simulation rooms, a learning and procedural skills anatomy lab, medical library, 50-seat tiered lecture hall, student support spaces, and faculty and administrative office suite. Also included in the project is exterior renovation, expansion, and site enhancements of the ASB, creating new connectivity between the building and site.
