Warren Alpert Medical School Building
Providence, Rhode Island
LEED Gold Certified
Ellenzweig provided programming, design, and construction administration services for the conversion of an existing building in the Jewelry District of Providence to serve as the home of the Warren Alpert Medical School.
Teaching spaces in the facility include case study classrooms, lecture halls, anatomy suite, clinical skills suite, simulation center, library/resource center, and seminar rooms; also located in the building are a fitness center, café, student academies, and offices and support spaces for admissions, administration, financial aid, and curriculum affairs.
The Warren Alpert Medical School, the only school of medicine in Rhode Island, is home to a community of scholars and physicians dedicated to the highest standards in education, research, and health care; it is affiliated with seven teaching hospitals. The move to its new location realizes two University-wide initiatives: strengthening the reputation and visibility of the Medical School and setting the stage for Brown’s future expansion beyond its core campus on College Hill.
In recognition of this vision, the design of the facility repositions the existing building by providing significant entries at two sides: one facing College Hill, and one toward future development along the Providence River. A Student Commons connects the two entries and serves as a central circulation spine along which program spaces are located on each of the three main floors.
Suffolk Construction collaborated with Brown University and Ellenzweig in a design-build delivery. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
