The University of Houston celebrated the groundbreaking of a new 75,000 SF academic building at the UH at Sugar Land instructional site, which Vaughn serves as construction manager-at-risk. The Technology Building-Sugar Land Academic Building 2 (SAB2) will be home for faculty, staff, and UH Cullen College of Engineering-Technology students.
“We are grateful for the collaboration of supporters in the region and state whose investment in UH will result in a new generation of engineering and technology professionals,” said Renu Khator, president of the University of Houston. “The growth of our Technology Division and our Sugar Land instructional site supports our vision of building a top 50 public university that provides a top tier educational experience and creates impactful research.”
The new, three-story building will house classrooms, labs, and offices for UH Cullen College of Engineering-Technology Division faculty, staff, and students. Other features include wet and dry labs, traditional and active learning classrooms, computer labs, and student lounge areas. The new construction will allow UH’s technology division to complete its transition from the UH main campus to Sugar Land.
The building will be adjacent to the current Technology Building and is slated to be completed in 2025.
