The University of North Texas (UNT) needs a larger facility to expand its Biomedical Engineering program. We have a strong resume working with colleges and universities on similar projects. It’s a pairing with purpose.
We are just getting under way, with a 12-month construction timeline. The project will add 26,000 gross square feet to the existing building at the UNT Discovery Park campus.
“Sundt’s resume in higher education, with emphasis on the health and sciences projects, made this connection perfect,” Project Manager Holly Horsak said.
One of the nation’s largest public research universities, UNT has an enrollment of more than 38,000. The university grew from a private college to a large public research university. It’s the fourth-largest university in North Texas and the biggest in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
“UNT is 128 years old with 10 colleges and two schools and are experiencing record-breaking enrollment growth,” Holly said. “We want to grow with them.”
Coincidentally, our company was also founded in 1890. This project, which expands our university work in Texas, could create a match both sides find beneficial for many years.
“We are really excited to have been chosen for this project and are looking forward to building a long-lasting relationship with UNT,” Holly said.
