Texas Medical Center, TMC3 Collaborative Building


Project Details

ClientTexas Medical Center

Architect: Elkus Manfredi Architects

Location: Houston, TX

Delivery: Construction Manager-at-Risk


Project Overview

As the cornerstone of the new TMC3 campus, the Collaborative Building brings together public entities with private industry partners under a single roof to collectively work toward scientific breakthroughs. The five-story building features a grand entrance on the first floor, leading into a public gathering space with a four-story atrium, a 10,000 SF skylight, and tiered seating with an integrated audio/visual system. The first floor includes building infrastructure, common areas, and retail/food service lease space. The middle floors contain laboratories and office build-out for the founding institutions of the Texas Medical Center along with shell space. 

Unique Challenge

We coordinated with Vaughn team members, trade partners, and Owners while working on four additional active projects on the TMC3 campus. The TMC3 project team led the coordination effort without affecting the other projects while making suggestions to other projects' design teams to ensure they understood working conditions and lessons learned. Throughout construction, the Collaborative Building lived up to its name, becoming a true campus collaborator for our project teams.
