Roofing work is 95% complete on the anatomy wing of the Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center, and brick installation continues through mid-summer. The project, which began in November 2019, includes the renovation of the 120,000-square-foot Hamilton Hall and construction of a new 100,000-square-foot building that, combined, will create a collaborative campus for interprofessional education throughout the Health Sciences. Current construction activities include:

  • Interior framing is ongoing on floors one to three.
  • Mechanical systems, electrical conduit, and plumbing piping are being installed on the lower floors.
  • The air handling units recently were set in the penthouse of the new Anatomy wing.
  • Underground site utility work is ongoing.

Beginning June 2021 and continuing through September 2021, portions of Starling Loving and Fry bridge will be demolished to allow for the new 100,000-square-foot building along 10th Ave.

The Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Center facility opening dates are scheduled for three phases:

  • Anatomy Wing Phase – January 2022
  • Classroom Wing Phase – June 2023
  • Hamilton Renovation Phase – January 2024
