Texas A&M University - Health Science Center Houston

The Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAM-HSC) engaged Broaddus Planning to program and site plan a new Houston Research Building 2, a state-of-the-art research tower, and complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) upgrades to the existing Alkek Building (Research Building 1), in Houston, Texas. The Alkek Building houses the Institute of Biosciences and Technology (IBT) and components of TAMU Colleges of Medicine Pharmacy.

The driver behind the new research tower is to extend the biomedical research profile and enhance the impact of TAMU. The greatest opportunities for growing the TAMU research portfolio lie in biomedical research, where “team science” and collaborations with other world-class researchers across the TMC will be the key for success. The facility program supports research growth, recruitment of faculty, and collaborate research models. The program established thematic research issues (eg. “regenerative medicine” and “drug discovery”) that align with TAM-HSC’s research priorities.
