The renovation of the health services facility at Arizona State University focused on efficiency and the environment.

Designed to LEED Platinum, the almost 37,000-square-foot Health Services-Tempe Building combined two separate structures, replacing a single-level 1953 wing with a two-story 20,000-square-foot clinic and renovating an existing two-story structure built in 1968.

Facing the main campus pedestrian corridor, the facility connects with the environment with an easterly orientation for morning light and a series of small xeriscape gardens, says an article in Architectural Record. Sustainable materials and finishes were used throughout, reinforcing an "indoor-outdoor theme."

Waiting areas feature numerous outlets for recharging electronic devices, an amenity requested by students during the design stage. The redesign has helped to cut down on wait times and encourages students to prioritize their health, the article says.
