UTEP Interdisciplinary Research Building

Location: Texas, USA
The university of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) has initiated construction of an interdisciplinary research building (IDRB) at 500 West University Avenue in Texas, USA.The purpose of constructing the building is to support interdisciplinary research teams from colleges across the campus. This is expected to be completed with an estimated investment of $85m.The designs for the building were unveiled in August 2016, while construction is scheduled to be completed by late 2019. The Research Building Project consisted of 5 occupied levels and one unoccupied mechanical floor (level 6). With a Bhutanese architectural design featuring drought-resistant vegetation, a canyon-like patio will bridge the research facility and an undergraduate learning centre. The building will also feature pedestrian paths and elevated walkways. The research building is being constructed by replacing Burges and Barry buildings in the south-east corner of University Avenue and Sun Bowl Drive within sight of Interstate 10. The scope of construction includes expanding the thermal plant infrastructure, extending electrical and communication duct banks and other anticipated site improvements.
