Vaughn Completes TMC3 Collaborative Building at Texas Medical Center

Vaughn served as construction manager-at-risk for Texas Medical Center's (TMC) 250,000 SF TMC3 Collaborative Building, located at the heart of Houston’s 37-acre Helix Park. The building houses synergistic research initiatives for four founding institutions: MD Anderson, Texas A&M University Health Science Center, the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and TMC.

The four-story, state-of-the-art building fosters collaboration between academic institutions and industry partners through a 43,000 SF joint research lab, office/co-working space, and a shared IT infrastructure to facilitate idea exchange. In addition, the building will host future commercial life science companies and industry leaders.

As part of a 37-acre campus designed to foster collaboration among healthcare, life science, and business professionals, the campus includes six public green spaces across 19 acres. The area comprises restaurants, a hotel and conference center, a residential tower, shops, and two parking garages.

“We lay the cornerstone of a new campus fully dedicated to streamlining the commercialization of life-changing innovations in medicine and technologies,” said William McKeon, president and CEO of TMC. “We are incredibly excited to both welcome our founding institutions and industry partners to the Collaborative Building and to invite the community to experience the Helix Park campus and its beautiful parks.”

The TMC3 Collaborative Building serves as a significant milestone for the Texas Medical Center’s commitment to advancing healthcare and research, fostering innovation, and improving the well-being of communities.

The State of Texas will benefit from an ongoing annual impact of over $5.4 billion. More than 23,000 permanent new Harris County jobs will drive that gain, representing virtually all industries, pay scales, tax levels, and educational backgrounds.
