Following a highly-competitive selection process, HOK and Design Collective were awarded the Third Phase of the Health Sciences Facility for the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). The $190 million project will involve full-service architectural and engineering design services for the creation of a new 331,969 gross square foot facility that will house the University’s Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy Schools. The building will be situated thoughtfully among the existing facilities of the three (3) schools allowing for maximum sharing of resources and interactions. UMB is seeking to design a high-performance building that will achieve LEED Gold Certification or higher. The new facility is critical to maintaining and advancing UMB’s position as academic and research leaders, as well as to recruit and retain the best faculty, students and staff to advance healthcare and discoveries. The HOK/Design Collective team was selected from a pool of 19 teams, consisting of nationally-recognized architects and engineers. The contract award was approved by the Maryland Board of Public Works in May.
