DENTON, Texas (September X, 2019) -Sundt Construction, Inc. (www.sundt.com) participated in a dedication of the University of North Texas (UNT) Biomedical Engineering addition on Thursday, located at the northwest corner of the UNT Discovery Park campus.
“We’re proud of this project and look forward to seeing the outcomes of the innovation and discovery that will take place in these labs and classrooms,” said Sundt Project Manager Holly Horsak.
The $11.6 million project included a 26,250-square-foot addition onto the existing main building at Discovery Park.

The new facility adds two large research labs, three teaching labs and three classrooms, one of which will be a tiered auditorium that seats 175 students.
