Nursing Simulation Center, Brandman University
(Chapman University System)
Location: Irvine, California
Completed: September 2011
Architect: ADAY Architects

LCS began the 14,000 square foot renovation project for Brandman University’s Nursing Simulation Center in April 2011. The project included the renovation of the North Wing of the second floor which will house a new state-of-the-art nursing simulation laboratory as well as the reconstruction of adjacent office space.
This project involved the construction of hospital grade nursing simulation stations and related teaching areas to support Brandman’s nursing curriculum in an active academic building with ongoing classes. Careful coordination was required with Brandman’s facilities team to ensure that any MEP shutdowns/cutovers did not interfere with classes, and that interference with operations was minimized during the ingress/egress of construction personnel and equipment.
