New Hampshire firm announces engagement for Merrimack College’s New Nursing Center
SALEM, N.H. – Trident Project Advantage Group continues its longstanding relationship with Merrimack College and applauds the College’s leadership as it continues to expand their higher education offerings with the introduction of their new major, Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Merrimack gained recent approval from the Massachusetts State Board of Registration in Nursing to offer their new degree in Nursing starting this Fall 2019. This new degree program is expected to attract high-achieving, top-ranked students to become strong, knowledgeable and compassionate nurses.
Trident has been engaged as Merrimack’s trusted Owner’s Project Manager for their new Nursing Center which will house the Nursing Program. The Nursing Center has been designed to simulate a real-world hospital with high tech teaching tools, such as programmable wireless mannequins that simulate ailments for students to diagnose. The two-story building’s basis of design is centered on the concept of a typical hospital, including a Med Surge room, OBGYN room, Critical Care room, observation rooms and laboratory space. The Nursing Center, at 20,000 square feet, will also include classrooms/study spaces, faculty offices, lounge spaces, conference room and support spaces. The exterior façade will incorporate many of the materials used on other Merrimack College, North Campus buildings and will have a “wood” look to soften the design as well as plenty of glazed openings for natural light.
The Nursing Center is a design-build project in which Trident Project Advantage Group is working closely with Pro Con, LLC to ensure the vision for the center is delivered on schedule and on budget. The new Nursing Center is expected to open for the Spring Semester 2020.
Trident has been supporting Merrimack College since 2011.
