Gross Anatomy Lab & Hederman Science Complex Expansion, Mississippi College

Clinton, MS

Project Description

Building Program:
1) Histology Lab: 60 stations
2) (2) Tiered Lecture Hall Classrooms (small and large): 120 seats in the large classroom and 75-80 seats in the small classroom. Both rooms will be tiered.
3) Cadaver Lab (Gross Anatomy Lab): 21 total dissection tables (7 rows of 3). Typically four students will share one cadaver. Therefore, typical student occupant load of 84 should be assumed + a minimum of 4 instructors/ assistants.
4) Research Labs: 4 total research labs (2 labs are combined with a wall/opening between). Focus for faculty research, with student research assistants.
5) Offices: 4 faculty offices and 1 Dean’s office.

Facility Features:
1) Approximately 20,000 square feet building footprint. All interior space is located on the second floor. This is a building expansion on to the existing Hederman Science complex.
2) The newest Audio/Visual technology, to assist in teaching, will be incorporated into the new facility. Gross Anatomy Lab is designed to allow for the overhead display of dissections. Focus on instructor control.
3) Facility is designed to meet specific needs of the growing MC School of Science and Mathematics. Cadaver program is new, Histology is a growing field, Faculty Size has increased, and Faculty is performing more research

My experience with JBHM was extremely positive. The communication between their team and Mississippi College was always clear and timely. One of the things I appreciated about their work was attention to detail and their willingness to answer my many questions that I had throughout the process. I knew that I could pick up the phone and speak to someone on their end who patiently addressed any questions or concerns that I had. During many meetings between me, the contractor and JBHM, I gained an appreciation of JBHM’s role as my advocate within that group, making sure that my interests were served during the project to ensure an excellent end result. We have been in our building for a year, and we are well pleased with the quality and design of the building.
