UT Dallas Science Building

Richardson, Texas

Opened in July of 2020, UTD’s new Science Building is a 186,000 square-foot facility housing the Department of Physics and the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics. The new building includes classrooms, offices, teaching and research laboratories, and features 150-seat and 300-seat lecture halls and an open courtyard with green space and seating areas.

A few potential project challenges for DSI included:

  • Utility plant expansion to support new campus load
  • Congested utility corridors necessary to support lab spaces
  • Installation of an optics lab with extremely stringent temperature and humidity requirements
