The Blood Connection

The Greenville Blood Assurance Plan was formed to help supply the needs of Greenville County, South Carolina, by recruiting volunteer blood donors for hospitals. By the 1980’s, the center had grown into an organization in need of its own building. In 2000, trustees adopted the mission-oriented name, The Blood Connection.


Creative Architectural Solutions was called upon for a new proto- type facility design. In a joint venture with Chute Gerdeman Design, CAS developed a newly branded donor friendly proto- typical 14 bed blood donation center. Architectural elements include continuous clerestory windows allowing maximum utilization of natural light, and ultra-high efficiency HVAC systems. a smaller 10 bed prototype was also developed for smaller properties.
