Graduate, senior, and junior students interested in building their portfolio should look into an opportunity to work on the following project during spring break.
For the 2017 Alternative Spring Break project, students will be working with the Memorial Hospital in Savannah.
The Memorial University Medical Center is an award-winning 604-bed academic medical center that serves a 35-county area in southeast Georgia and southern South Carolina. It is a regional referral center for heart care, cancer care, trauma care, children's care, high-risk pregnancies, and high-risk newborn care. The hospital includes the region's only Level 1 trauma center, the region's only children's hospital, and the Savannah campus of Mercer University School of Medicine. In 2015, Memorial had 26,280 admissions and 242,338 outpatient visits, performed 21,541 surgeries and delivered 2,870 babies
The ASB project will encompass the following:
1. Due to an increased number of sick or premature born babies, the hospital is looking to add more rooms to its PICU (Prenatal Intensive Care Unit) and NICU(Neonatal Intensive care unit). Since space is fixed they would like SCAD to come up with proposals on how they can cut down their lobby space while upgrading it to a more effective, family friendly and functional space.
2. Coming up with proposals on how to transform the long dreary corridor that connects the
PICU and NICU.
3. Work on photography or art proposals/projects that will be used to brighten the interior spaces of the PICU and NICU.
Professor Christina Gonano ,the immediate past president of the Georgia chapter of IIDA (the International Interior Design
Association), will oversee the entire project as project manager.
