Student Health and Counseling Center Plans Underway
Plans for the new Student Health and Counseling Center are underway according to yesterday's Houstonian:
The team met Jan. 9 to explain to the potential architects and contractors the bidding process. The architects and contractors have to submit documentation talking about previous projects that they have done and how they can contribute to the project.
The construction management team met Wednesday and looked through what people have submitted to see what their qualifications are, according to SHC director Sarah Hanel.
Hanel said on Jan. 25 the university will meet and announce the short list of companies they would like a presentation from and an opportunity to interview. By Feb. 7 the interviews will be complete and the most qualified contracting and architectural company will be selected on Feb. 8.
Jan. 25 they plan to break ground at the old King Hall location. This is across the street from their current location.
"A lot of the Health Centers traffic comes from new Lone Star Hall and a lot of the freshman dorms surrounding us as well as Old Main Market," according to Hanel.
The estimated breaking of ground is in October of this year and the building is hoped to be finished in the summer of 2014.
