Dell Medical School

About the Project

In late 2011, Texas Senator Kirk Watson created a list of ten health-care centered goals he hoped to achieve within ten years for the Central Texas district with the primary being his desire to build a medical school in Austin. In May 2012, the Board of Regents allocated $25 million of annual funding to a UT Austin medical school, plus another $40 million spread over eight years for faculty recruiting. In November 2012, Travis County voters approved a proposition to raise property tax revenue in support of health care initiatives for Central Texas, including $35 million annually for a medical school. The medical school is named after the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, which has pledged $50 million over ten years to the school.

My Role on the Project Team

At the Dell Medical school, once again I was directly responsible for managing the complete scope for a wide range of subcontractors including the structural steel, exterior curtain wall, glazing, insulation, building specialties, elevators, as well as all laboratory systems. The role managed every aspect from signing subcontractors up and getting their letters of recommendation in, writing RFIs and reviewing and coordination of submittals, and ensuring subcontractors were paid on time and all changes were accurately captured. Also spent a lot of time in the field coordinating issues that would pop up due to the projects fast pace and ever changing request from the owner.
