From The Eugene Register-Guard: Lane Community College in Eugene, Ore., has broken ground on a $15 million health and wellness building, the first new academic center on campus in 10 years. The 41,700-square-foot building will house the nursing, emergency medical technology, respiratory care, physical therapist assistant and other health-related programs.

It will have a solar-­thermal hot-water system and use thermal massing and passive ventilation. The architect is SRG Partnership.
