Gonzaga, UW projects progress on schedule
Science building to be completed this fallMarch 25th, 2021
Gonzaga University is involved in two ongoing construction projects with a combined value approaching $110 million.
The larger of the two projects is the $60 million medical and health education building, which is rising at 840 E. Spokane Falls Blvd. Gonzaga and the University of Washington have committed to a long-term lease for space in the four-story, 90,000-square-foot structure.
Near the center of Gonzaga’s campus, the university is well underway on construction of a $49.7 million Integrated Science and Engineering facility.
At the health education building, foundation work has been completed, and crews are erecting structural steel. Many components of the structure are being fabricated off-site currently. The building is scheduled to be completed by June 2022.
McKinstry Corp., which is located on the West Side but has an extensive presence in Spokane, is the design-build contractor for the project, which is being developed by its affiliate, Emerald Initiative. Bouten Construction Co., of Spokane, is working as the general contractor on the project, and CollinsWoerman, a Seattle-based architecture company that has an office in Spokane, is the project architect.
The three-story, 82,600-square-foot Integrated Science and Engineering facility is expected to be completed this fall.
Walker Construction Inc., of Spokane, is the contractor on the project. The facility’s design involves a collaboration between Spokane’s Integrus Architecture PS, Portland, Oregon-based SRG Partnership Inc., and San Diego-based laboratory design consulting firm Research Facilities Design.
