Located on the campus of Houston Community College (HCC) and the Texas Medical Center, Coleman College for Health Sciences provides programs in over 20 health science fields. To accommodate a burgeoning student enrollment projected by 2020, and to serve its mission “to be the most relevant community college in the country,” TCM served as Project Manager to oversee the design and construction of its health sciences programs. The new facility expansion, located across the street from the existing building, provides the additional space needed to support a variety of health sciences academic programs including nursing, pharmacy, and medical and dental assisting. The state-of-the-art building is designed to look and function like a hospital, providing students with meaningful experiences that prepare them for their future healthcare professions.

  • A pedestrian bridge that connects the existing HCC Coleman building with the new facility and allows for safe passage across a busy road
  • Classrooms and learning stations connected to skills laboratories, simulation laboratories, and biology and biosafety laboratories to support hands-on, active learning
  • Student collaboration spaces on every level
  • A lobby and 800-seat special events and multi-purpose meeting room that can be open to the public without compromising the security of the rest of the building
