Construction of the Robert and Carol Gunn College of Health Sciences and Human Services building continues on schedule on the northwest corner of Midwestern State University.
“The construction cost associated with this project is roughly $34 million, which will be supplemented by the university when they embark on their portion of the project to furnish and equip the building for actual use by the university and its students,” said Dave Lilley, CEO of Trinity Hughes Construction.
The building will be one of the largest on campus and stand four stories tall.
It will feature 85,000 square feet of classrooms, laboratory space, student collaboration area, lounge, faculty offices and food kiosk.
Construction began in February, and the building will be in the dry by mid-December with construction wrapping up by late June, Lilley said.
He said they expect to have the building ready to be equipped and furnished in time for classes in the fall of 2019.
