Via azbigmedia.com

The commemorative last steel beam was put into place recently at the University of Arizona Health Sciences Innovation Building project in Tucson, a world-class center designed to be the vanguard for inter-professional health professions education in the United States.

“We have experienced a tremendous evolution in the types of facilities we are building to accommodate today’s complex healthcare climate,” said Kitchell Contractors President Steve Whitworth. “Working on this facility extends our experience on hospitals and community health clinics to higher education, and we couldn’t be more pleased about contributing to the changing landscape on the University of Arizona campus.” Kitchell is the project’s general contractor.

The $165 million facility broke ground last year. Designed by Los Angeles-based CO Architects with Tucson-based Swaim Architects, the 10-story, 220,000-square-foot building is located on the west side of the Arizona Health Sciences Campus, north of the Bio5 building off East Helen Street and North Cherry Avenue. The project is envisioned to foster collaboration among multidisciplinary teams of students and faculty in all four colleges: medicine, nursing, pharmacy and public health. Classrooms can accommodate as many as 150 people in a flexible “flipped classroom” format, which prioritizes group work over lectures. The building also includes a special events space that allows for more than 1,000 people.

Via yesmagazine.org

Kimber Lanning stands at just 5 feet 1 inch. But in the Arizona economic landscape where she acts as a fierce advocate for local economies, she is a giant.

In 2003, Lanning started Local First Arizona. She was the only employee, and didn’t take any salary. Now, with 3,200 members, it is the largest coalition of local businesses in the country. The coalition’s staff of 24 manages programs ranging from an annual local business fall festival to the state’s first directory of locally grown food to a program in Spanish for micro-entrepreneurs.

Lanning is widely recognized for her work. Even though she finds traditional economic development planners to be frequent adversaries, in 2014 the International Economic Development Council awarded her a Citizen Leader of the Year Award. She considers that a turning point in planners’ recognition of the value of local businesses. Arizona Business Magazine named her one of the 50 most influential women in Arizona, and the American Planning Association named her Distinguished Citizen Planner for her work on the reuse of old buildings.
