Brookhaven College, Allied Health and Science Building
Brookhaven College is a 10,000-student community college, on a 200-acre campus, serving the northwest part of Dallas County with student-focused educational programs. Brookhaven College opened its doors in 1978 as one of seven Dallas County Community Colleges. The Dallas County Community College District is the largest undergraduate institution in the state of Texas.
A newest building nestled on its 32-year-old campus, the Science and Allied Health building at houses EMS, Nursing, Biology, Chemistry and Radiology. It includes classrooms, various labs specific to departmental use, a 120-seat lecture hall, and collaborative spaces and offices for students and professors.
The size and number of classrooms on the ground floor are adjustable: movable walls create anywhere from four classrooms for up to 25 people, to one classroom for up to 100 people. Additionally, to support the college's commitment to green practices, the building also was equipped with earth-friendly features such as polished concrete floors, paints and sealants low in volatile organic compounds, north-facing windows to optimize natural light and a reflective roof to minimize heat gain.
