University of Texas at Dallas Bioengineering and Sciences Building
(DALLAS, TEXAS) – The University of Texas at Dallas Bioengineering and Sciences building provides 220,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research laboratories that are sufficiently flexible to be used as multi-disciplinary teaching labs, laboratory support spaces, faculty and student offices, and administrative offices. The building houses multiple disciplines in a new paradigm of highly flexible research space within one building.
The overall site is designed to align with the main campus’s north-south axis while creating a pedestrian-friendly courtyard within the configuration of the existing Natural Science and Engineering Research building, the new Bioengineering and Sciences building, and the new 275-seat lecture hall.
All laboratory floors connect directly to the adjacent Natural Science and Engineering building via a bridge, except for level one, which connects to the existing facility by a covered walkway. The basement-level program consists of eight neuroscience laboratories and five core laboratories. Level one is home to 12 chemistry laboratories and an executive conference suite, including three large conference rooms. Level two houses 16 physics laboratories, level three holds 16 bioengineering laboratories, and level four has the remaining four neuroscience laboratories.
