Medical Research and Education Building II
Texas A&M Health Science Center
SSA provided Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing engineering services for Texas A&M Health Science Center Medical Research & Education Building 2 (MREB-2) to support the research program on Texas A&M Health Science Center Bryan Campus. This project is an expansion of the existing campus. The new facility is comprised of two parts: (1) construction of a new 4 story, 175,000 SF Medical Research and Education Building 2 (MREB-2) and (2) the construction of two additional levels and completion of the shell space in the lower level of the MREB-1.
The construction of the two additional levels on top of the existing building had a unique challenge as the existing building houses the gross anatomy lab which must remain functional during construction. The anatomy lab exhaust systems had to be raised prior to the construction of the infill below. The infill of this building included the expansion of the existing BSL 3 lab in the adjacent MREB 1 building.
The scope of the spaces to be included in the MREB 2 building include research labs, laboratory core facilities, office space, a health and wellness center and circulation space.
The buildout of the shell space in the MREB 1 building included the expansion of an existing vivarium.
The campus central plant was expanded to accommodate the new construction. This included a new chiller and cooling tower.
