CAHS to Celebrate Final Beam Signing for the Health Sciences Building
The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Allied Health Sciences will celebrate the signing of the final beam in the construction of the Health Sciences Building (HSB) on Thursday, April 19, 2018. The event, which includes a ceremonial signing of the beam, will be held at 11 a.m. at the construction site at the corner of Eden Avenue and Panzeca Way.
The beam will be signed by Tina Whalen, EDd, dean of the College of Allied Health Sciences, along with faculty, staff and students, as well as members of the Leadership Council Executive Committee and a representative from the UC Foundation.
The HSB is being built on the site of a former parking lot just south of the Kettering Lab Complex and north of Eden Avenue Garage. The construction of HSB is a major part of the medical campus master plan, a seven-segment project that has seen the demolition of Kettering North, Wherry Hall and the Radiation Safety Offices, along with the renovation of Kowalewski Hall and moving the College of Pharmacy to the Medical Sciences Building.
The 117,000 square feet in HSB is an increase of 50 percent from what CAHS currently occupies in French East. The HSB is scheduled to be completed by spring of 2019.
