School of Medicine Building II

The proposed building is anticipated to provide up to 57,000 assignable square feet (ASF) within approximately 90,000 gross square feet (GSF). The space program will incorporate the following types of spaces, to complement SOM's existing program:

Project Scope:

  • Build instruction and instructional support spaces such as classrooms, specialized teaching spaces, and lecture halls;
