Skanska has been awarded a $63 million contract by the University of South Florida to build the Morsani College of Medicine and Heart Institute at the university campus in Tampa.
The contract calls for the construction of about a 37,000-sq. m. structure. The building will include learning and conference spaces, an auditorium, laboratories, faculty offices and a clinical research and care unit.
In a statement, the University of South Florida said that the state-of-the-art facility will combine under one roof a medical school to teach the next generation of physicians and a cardiovascular research institute to pioneer new discoveries for heart health. The $152.6-million building features angles and facets offering unique viewpoints from within and ample windows to allow reflective light into work and learning spaces.
Construction is expected to be expected by late 2019.
