Koury Oral Health Sciences Building

The Koury Oral Health Sciences Building is the cornerstone for dental education, research, and service for the people of North Carolina. This project involved a multiphase modernization effort including new construction, expansions, and renovations. The new construction component of the project required decommissioning and demolition of existing dental office and research buildings. A pedestrian bridge was provided to connect the all-new replacement facilities with the adjacent School of Medicine. Also included was an indoor atrium providing gathering space for faculty and students. A comprehensive renovation was provided to Brauer Hall, home to the original School of Dentistry. This assignment entailed renovating a total of 104,000 sf on five floors to house new labs, classrooms, student areas, administration offices, and a common area. Fire alarm upgrades were also provided in an adjacent existing 200,000 sf facility.
