The 25,000 sf Teaching and Learning Center renovated the second floor of the existing UCSF Medical Library to create a simulation learning center that emulates a wide variety of healthcare environments for clinical training. The innovative and interactive teaching facility includes rooms that simulate such clinical environments as exam, operation, Emergency and ICU rooms; a state-of-the-art computer center; seven large seminar rooms; and four classrooms fully equipped for interactive, technology-driven medical training. The sophisticated audiovisual technology allows students and faculty from a variety of healthcare disciplines the opportunity to work side-by-side, as well as “telecommunicate,” as they develop the skills required to deliver patient care. Estructure provided complete structural engineering design services for the renovations and worked collaboratively with the project team throughout all phase of design and construction. Construction cost $15.5 million.
