The College of Southern Idaho's $21 million, 72,000 square-foot Health Science and Human Services (HSHS) building is big, beautiful, and comes with an impressive number of classrooms, labs, offices, and student study areas. But this building isn't just about numbers. It's about the quality of education CSI can offer its health science and human services students. It's also about a key partnership with the expanding St. Luke's Magic Valley
Regional Medical Center and other hospitals and health centers throughout southern Idaho.
It is the only one in southern Idaho that has earned gold level LEED certification. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design awards are hard to come by and take a lot of work, not only during construction, but in the planning of a building. Construction has to include as many locally available and recycled materials as possible. The design must maximize the use of natural light and minimize the consumption of fossil fuels. Even the construction site itself, which employed close to 100 workers for 16 months, looks different from most other sites due to the recycling and sorting of waste materials.
