UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT DALLAS BIOENGINEERING & SCIENCES BUILDING
The University of Texas at Dallas Bioengineering and Sciences Building provides 220,000 GSF 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 Bioengineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Neuroscience, Biology, Chemistry and Physics disciplines.
All laboratory floors connect directly to the adjacent Natural Science and Engineering Building via bridge, except for Level 1 which connects to the existing facility by a covered walkway. The Basement Level program consists of 8 Neuroscience Laboratories, and 5 Core Labs. Level 1 is home to 12 Chemistry Labs and an executive conference suite including 3 large conference rooms. Level 2 houses 16 Physics Laboratories, Level 3 holds 16 Bioengineering Laboratories, and Level 4 has the remaining 4 Neuroscience Laboratories.
Brandt’s scope of work included raceway systems, a cable tray system, cellular metal floor raceway, electrical wiring and devices, wiring systems, surge protective devices, electrical distribution equipment, automatic power factor controllers, electric service entrance switchgear, generator control and paralleling switchgear, electric service entrance, architectural lighting fixtures, dimming systems, UPS, fire alarm system, fire alarm/security system interface and electrical control systems.
