On Thursday, April 21st, Berea College broke ground on the Ballinger-designed Natural Sciences and Health Building.

At the ceremony, Berea College President Lyle Roelofs stated about the building, “This new 125,000 square foot building will provide an interdisciplinary learning environment, space for enhanced collaboration among disciplines such as biology, chemistry, and Berea’s well-known nursing program, the oldest college-affiliated nursing program west of the Allegheny Mountains.”

Upon approaching the Berea campus from the north, the new building provides a landmark presence blending a contextual Georgian exterior character with a daylight-infused, transparent, contemporary interior environment of flexible pedagogy.
