University at Buffalo Releases Time-Lapse Video and Design Details of New Medical School Facility
The University at Buffalo has launched a new website documenting design and construction of the university’s School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences facility, designed by HOK.
“[The new website] will provide detailed information as the new medical school takes shape. Current features include a construction timeline and a gallery of images, as well as a live, minute-by-minute webcam feed taken from a camera on the roof of Buffalo General Medical Center, one of the UB medical school’s partner hospitals,” according to the UB Reporter.
The website also features a time-lapse video of the facility’s construction.
“UB is building the largest medical education building under construction in the nation so we want everyone who passes by to know what will be happening here and how it will benefit Western New York,” Michael E. Cain, vice president for health sciences and dean of the medical school, told UB Reporter.
The eight story, 600,000-sq.-ft. facility is scheduled to open in 2017. When it opens, the school will bring 2,000 UB faculty, staff and students to downtown Buffalo each day.
