Founders Hall
Founders Hall serves as the new home for Naugatuck Valley Community College’s Center for Health Sciences. The first step of this project entailed abatement and substantial demolition of the former NVCC engineering building down to its steel structure and raw concrete floors. Renovations/rebuilding and additions created a new facility designed to house a variety of health science related programs including nursing, emergency medical technician, diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, surgical technician, respiratory therapy, and home care.

More Information

The building includes patient simulator labs, classrooms, faculty and administrative offices, computer labs, student study areas, a collaborative learning classroom, a lecture hall, and a multi-purpose room seating over 300 people. In addition to NVCC undergraduates, it also serves nursing students from WCSU and UCONN Waterbury. Construction began in the Spring of 2015 and was completed in 2017.
