Vaughn Wins School of Medicine Expansion at University of Texas Rio Grande Valley

by Vaughn Construction | Feb 26, 2018


The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) recently selected Vaughn as the construction manager-at-risk for the $7.5 million School of Medicine (SOM) Team Based Learning Center project. In 2014, UTRGV selected Vaughn to build the Medical Education Building for their newly created SOM program. Because the SOM has outgrown its existing facility, the SOM Team Based Learning Center will provide an additional 13,845 SF of space for faculty and administrative offices, touch down spaces, study spaces, and general-purpose classrooms. The stand-alone building will be built next to the Medical Education Building and will feature flexible classrooms with modern technology to support future physicians and educational methods needed in the Rio Grande Valley region. Construction is scheduled to begin October 2018 and targets a final completion date of December 2019.
