Oakland Community College’s Southfield Campus Health Sciences Building has served students and staff since 1981. An 85% increase in enrollment in health science fields over the past ten years increased the demand for state-of-the-art laboratory space.

The OCC Board of Trustees approved a $25.3 million, 3 ˝ year expansion of the facility. The expansion option included a 20,138 square foot addition and 71,837 square feet of renovated space to accommodate 2,000 additional students.

The new 2-level addition and renovation includes a new glassed-in campus welcome center that was configured to provide students a convenient and efficient gathering area for all student service functions. This new layout combines enrollment, cashier, counseling, and career center services together with information kiosks and a comfortable student seating and waiting area. A new, fully secure financial aid office is located adjacent to the welcome center. This area is equipped with easily accessible dual-service counters and all desired security monitoring and protective equipment. New space for a student bookstore is also included.

Spacious state-of-the-art biology, anatomy, chemistry and physics labs are new highlights of the facility. New elements include a surgical technology program lecture lab which replicates an operating room; improved and expanded nursing labs to accommodate 100 additional nursing students; new respiratory therapy laboratories and new tutoring suites, as well as a receiving dock. A new training suite for ‘First Responders’ includes a classroom, seminar room and a fully equipped 2-story multi-use, high-impact, training room bathed in natural light from clerestory windows above. As part of the third floor science lab wing, a scientific collaborative suite is designed to provide for interaction of science faculty and para-professional technicians. The space includes offices, conferencing and open work areas for the integration of lab preparation and instruction. Eight new flexible 54-seat academic classrooms are also part of the project.
