Construction to begin in the Long School of Medicine building

A town hall meeting to discuss a 20,000-square-foot reconstruction project in the Long School of Medicine building will be held 11:30 a.m. Sept. 14 in the Pestana Lecture Hall, Room 3.104, on the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Campus.

The project will begin this fall and is scheduled to be complete June 2024. It will expand research space along the seventh floor of the Long School of Medicine building, adding individual research labs, collaboration space, and shared lab and office support spaces. It will also include new mechanical, electrical, HVAC and plumbing systems.

Construction crews will work in day and evening shifts to meet the aggressive schedule of the project, which is considered an institutional priority, said Michael A. Charlton, PhD, CHP, LMP, CIH, CSP, CHMM, vice president of facilities and capital planning and chief facility planning officer.

The project scope and schedule will be discussed at the meeting, and project leaders will answer questions about the construction.
