LCS Constructors, (LCS) declared completion of the 14,000 sq.ft. renovation project for the Nursing Simulation Center of Brandman University. The project comprised reconstruction of the adjacent office area and the renovation of the second floor’s North Wing, which presently has a high-tech nursing simulation laboratory.
This project included the building of hospital grade nursing simulation stations and associated teaching areas to assist the Brandman's nursing course in an active academic institute with on-going classes. It was essential to co-ordinate carefully with Brandman's facilities team in order to make sure that any MEP cutovers or shutdowns will not get in the way of classes, and interference with operations was reduced during the entry or exit of construction equipment and personnel.
Established in 1958, Brandman University, a subsidary of the Chapman University System, caters to the exclusive requirements of students by facilitating quality education regulating according to every individual’s demanding schedules, with a mission to provide students with high-quality education based on flexibility and passion that creates an eternal value and significance for developing careers.
