Perkins+Will Houston has won yet another exciting project!
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso Medical Science Building II
Project Budget: $75,520,000
The project will construct a new 227,000 GSF research facility intended to provide complex research laboratories, lecture halls and classrooms, teaching space for each school, and faculty/researcher and staff offices. Additionally, this project is planned to house vivarium facilities, expand utility infrastructure, and other support space for the campus. Replacement parking will be required since this building will consume existing surface parking space on the east half of the campus. Landscape enhancement and public art will be provided.
The new facility will support the expanding research program of the newly established TTUS University Health Sciences Center El Paso, which consists of a 4-year medical school, nursing school, and developing School of Biomedical Sciences. TTUHSC El Paso continues to address the growing needs of the border area through expanded academic programs and research that addresses chronic border health issues and targets diseases such as diabetes, obesity, depression and infectious diseases.
