The University of South Carolina is planning to break ground in 2025 on a new home for the School of Medicine in Columbia. Accommodating an expanded annual class size of 130 students, the highly transparent facility will feature world-class academic environments such as active learning classrooms, extensive medical simulation spaces, and a health science library. The 300,000-sf complex will catalyze biomedical discovery with a dedicated research building housing multidisciplinary laboratories. Slated for occupancy in fall of 2027, the $300 million project will also establish a central utility plant, a parking deck, and numerous outdoor courtyards and gardens.

Gilbane is spearheading the planning and development efforts with The S/L/A/M Collaborative as lead design architect and Boudreaux as associate architect. Other team members include construction manager Brownstone, project manager Cummings, operations and maintenance provider Honeywell, and consulting firm Restoration 52.
