The Health and Sciences Innovation Building (HSIB) is a new facili­ty at the University of Arizona, designed by CO Architects and constructed by Kitchell of Phoenix. Boston Valley Terra Cotta manufactured the TerraClad® sunshade that is integrated into the glass curtainwall created by Kovach, the façade subcontractor for this project.

HSIB is a 9-story structure with a 220,000 square foot interior, providing world-class spaces for simulation, practice, learning, and community interaction. Located at the University of Arizona’s Health and Sciences campus in Tuscon, HSIB was designed to enhance and unite healthcare disciplines by creating collaborative environments for professionals, students, and faculty. The facility provides flexible learning spaces suited for groups of all sizes, including clinical skill building and simulation centers for a variety of uses and applications.
