At UC Irvine, construction is in the home stretch for the new home of the Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences and the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute.
The $134-million project, billed as a "flagship" for the future of health education, sits on a nine-acre site at the intersection of Bison and California Avenues, just south of UC Irvine's Research Park. The complex includes a five-story, 135,000-square-foot building which will house the Health Sciences College, as well as a four-story, 77,000-square-foot building that houses the Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing.
HED and The S/L/A/M Collaborative are the designing the health complex, which is centered on a landscape courtyard that connects to other nearby facilities within the UC Irvine campus.
Completion of the health complex is anticipated in 2022.
The two buildings are named after donors Susan and Henry Samueli and William and Sue Gross, who gave a combined sum of $240 million to UC Irvine to fund the construction and operations of the project.
Hathaway Dinwiddie Construction Company is serving as the project's general contractor.
