The University of Texas at Arlington is constructing a $76 million health sciences facility for the School of Social Work. Featuring flexible, technology-enabled learning environments, the 150,000-sf building will include teaching and research labs, study areas, and offices for faculty and staff. Designed by SmithGroup to enable an innovative pedagogy that enhances collaboration between allied health disciplines, the structure will also house the Smart Hospital, a clinical simulation center for the College of Nursing and Health Innovations. The facility is sited next to the Science & Engineering Innovation and Research Building to create a new Health Science Quad. Turner Construction broke ground on the project in February of 2021 and completion is expected in November of 2022.
