​HOUSTON – Construction is underway at the University of Houston on a second Health and Biomedical Sciences Building (HBSB2).​

The nine-story, 300,000-sf facility is the next phase of development for the school's biomedical district.

With a $145 million budget, HBSB2 will be home to specialized research and teaching labs; faculty and staff offices; an expanded health sciences library; and a mix of teaching spaces, including auditoriums and smaller learning spaces for g​roup and individual study. 

It will be the new home of the University of Houston College of Pharmacy and will consolidate faculty and students currently housed in the Texas Medical Center and Science and Research 2 buildings. The consolidation will help integrate teaching, research, and clinical programs.

Although construction is already underway, ceremonial groundbreaking will take place Feb. 29.

Shepley​ Bulfinch, the architectural firm that completed HBSB1 in 2013, is the architect for HBSB2.
