Carle Foundation Hospital was leasing space in 10 locations for more than 1,400 employees. The new building consolidates Carle and Health Alliance administrative and support functions to improve efficiency and collaboration.
With an expression of brick and stone, the architecture complements other Carle facilities in Champaign. The design maximizes windows and views to provide a welcoming environment filled with natural light. Along the east facade, a gathering area with food service features views out to a patio and landscaped courtyard. The design focuses on efficiency improvements with ’smart space’ principles such as flexible technology, systems, and controls that allow open and modular design components to be easily reconfigured. Employees also have access to biking and hiking trails on the site.
By consolidating separate departments in one, efficiently engineered facility, the administrative office building enables Carle to save on energy and operational costs, increase employee productivity, and conserve financial resources to expand healthcare services.
