George Mason University: Peterson Family Health Sciences Hall

Fairfax, Virginia
Perkins Eastman designed George Mason University’s flagship facility Peterson Family Health Sciences Hall. The 160,000 gsf building for the College of Health and Human Services, and its associated 15 acre site, includes general university classrooms, medical simulation suites, department offices, research labs, student services, teaching/demonstration kitchens, clinical practice spaces, parking, and extensive landscaping.

Located in the North Sector of the Fairfax Campus, this complex completes Perkins Eastman’s North Sector Plan which was developed with the ultimate goal of strongly defining a campus entrance, creating a variety of outdoor spaces, identifying future building sites, and reinforcing vehicular and pedestrian connections. The five-story facility will be a flagship for its campus in sustainability, student accommodation, community outreach, and visual design.
