Dallas County Health and Human Services is planning to construct the $52 million Public Health Laboratory in the growing Southwestern Medical District. Designed by Page, the 75,000-sf structure will provide BSL-3 environments for the detection and mitigation of infectious disease agents and toxins. Centralizing lab services previously dispersed in several locations, the state-of-the-art building will utilize robust ventilation systems to ensure the safe handling of potentially hazardous and pathogenic materials. The project team includes Beck Construction, Amber Infrastructure Group, and Integrated Project Solutions. Completion is expected in the fourth quarter of 2025 with occupancy slated for early 2026. Financial support for the development comes from the American Rescue Plan Act’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds program.
