CLIENT GOALS

In 2019 Mercyhurst University made the decision to consolidate their Nursing and Therapy programs away from the satellite campus located in North East, PA and onto their main campus located in Erie, PA. The University considered several different strategies for accommodating the students, faculty, and facilities and ultimately decided on an approach to locate the nursing program in the existing Motherhouse Building.

SOLUTIONS

The program for the renovation includes three nursing simulation labs with control rooms, two nursing skills labs, debrief room, shared classrooms, and a computer lab. The program also includes renovation for faculty offices, conference rooms, lounges, restroom renovations, and other support facilities. The program accreditation requires that the facility be completed and operational by January of 2022 – with such a large scope and short timeframe the University chose Weber Murphy Fox (WMF) as their architects and construction managers based on prior experience and proven history of delivering high quality projects with high efficiency and great results. WMF has worked closely with Mercyhurst University's Board and project committee to ensure the project remains on schedule and within budget. The project is currently under construction on track for completion in January 2022.

RESULTS

WMF’s services have led the client through the complexities of renovating and adding on to a 70-year-old building by identifying potential issues early and creating strategies that avoid negative impacts to schedule and budget. WMF’s project management structure has received the clients praise for keeping the University Board and committee updated and aware of project progress and milestones, as well as providing alternatives that allow the complex client structure to make timely and informed decisions.
