A longtime dormitory at the former Lambuth University, Sprague Hall was remodeled into office and clinical space that will allow the nursing program at the campus to continue its rapid growth. As a key area of focus for the campus, the nursing program’s enrollment is expected to almost double in the near future.
The new Sprague Hall serves as a vital piece to the long-term vision for the UofM Lambuth campus. It provides a significant boost to an essential goal of the nursing program — educating the future nurses of West Tennessee, a region where the profession is in high demand.
While the interior of Sprague Hall has been revitalized, the historical exterior was preserved. The full project includes 26,500 square feet of renovated space that includes labs, simulation suites, study areas, office space and more.
The design addressed demolition, upgrades to mechanical systems, rehabilitating restrooms and plumbing systems to include domestic hot water, modernizing light systems and electrical distribution, and updating interior finishes to include new flooring, ceilings, painting, doors, and hardware.
ADA improvements, including an elevator, were made to the entrance. All fire protection measures were also replaced.
