July 27, 2021
The largest project is construction of a $232 million MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital, scheduled for completion in spring 2024.

Five major construction projects are underway this summer on the University of Missouri (MU) campus in Columbia.

Memorial Student Union is undergoing repairs, Strickland Hall is having its bricks replaced, the Sinclair School of Nursing and the Women’s and Children’s Hospital are adding buildings, and the NextGen Precision Health building is under construction, reports the Missourian

The university is carrying out $3.7 million worth of roof and stonework repairs on the Memorial Student Union. Strickland Hall is undergoing $1 million in repairs.

The university's NextGen Precision Health building will be a 265,000-square-foot space for health researchers and clinicians. The facility's research tower will have wet and dry labs along with meeting spaces for students. 

The building will also have an Innovation tower, a clinical translational science unit and the NextGen Center for Imaging. 

The Innovation Tower will have graduate student workspaces, seminar rooms, multipurpose spaces, a visualization center and investigator offices.

The university plans to construct a $29 million, 61,000-square-foot building for its  Sinclair School of Nursing. It will connect to the MU School of Medicine and retain the foundations and basement already in the space.

The expansion will enable the university to increase the nursing class size by about 40 additional students, which would represent a 25% increase in enrollment.

The MU Women’s and Children’s Hospital is constructing a 324,445-square-foot building east of the patient care tower.

It will cost $232 million and will be seven stories tall plus a basement and a mechanical penthouse on the roof.
