UAB $335 million construction, renovation projects in progress this summer


The University of Alabama at Birmingham campus is undergoing a great deal of change — about $335 million worth.

Construction is underway on several major projects this summer to build new or renovate old buildings around the campus, from a basketball practice facility to a residence hall.

One of the biggest projects underway is the new UAB Science and Engineering Complex, which will become home to the basic sciences.

“This building represents a significant investment not only in our students’ future and the future of this university, but in the future world-changing research that will define our technology, communication platforms, food and water sources, geopolitics, healthcare, the global economy, and the sustainability of our planet,” according to a statement on UAB’s College of Arts and Sciences website.
