PrepMD hired the architect to design its new training center and office headquarters. PrepMD wanted the facility to express its position as a leader in the medical-device training industry. With its technical expertise and independent industry knowledge, PrepMD needed to communicate the advanced education its graduates receive.

A branding exercise was conducted to define the purpose, motivation, goals and target users. A simulated operation room, seen from the entry, immediately communicates the hands-on experience students receive.

A "programmer bar" utilizes cutting-edge technology, enabling nationwide recruiting and job placement through telecommunications.

A library reading room has medical references and periodicals, a student lounge, offices and conference spaces. Classrooms are equipped with the latest presentation and learning technologies, all of which reinforce PrepMD’s brand as leaders in medical technology training.

The reaction to the space has been resoundingly favorable. Inquiries and applications have seen tremendous growth, which the founders attribute to the facility’s ability to quickly communicate PrepMD’s values and mission.
