The University of Texas at San Antonio recently broke ground on a $95 million project, a new science and engineering education building. The 153,000-square-foot facility, slated to open in spring 2020, will be the first new major building at the Northwest Side campus in a few years.
According to the San Antonio Business Journal, the new structure will encourage a larger amount of collaboration between various campus initiatives and programs. The first floor will have space for engineering makerspace, and the university’s Center for Innovation and Technology Entrepreneurship. The second floor will accommodate biology and engineering class, lab and collaboration spaces. The third floor will be devoted to chemistry and chemical engineering. The fourth floor will feature space meant for the study of neurological health and chemical engineering.
Construction on the new facility will rely on a mix of brick and stone, setting a precedent for new construction at UTSA in the years and decades to come.
Alamo Architects and TreanorHL teamed up to design the new building.
