The University of New Mexico has broken ground in Albuquerque on a $43.3 million building for its College of Population Health and College of Nursing.

The 93,740-square-foot College of Nursing and Public Health Excellence building will enable the university to consolidate the two programs into one building, reports the Albuquerque Journal

The nursing program operates in about seven different buildings across the campus, and the College of Population Health doesn’t have a central office.

When construction is complete, the College of Population Health will occupy about half of the first floor, and the College of Nursing will fill the rest of the facility.

The building will feature  classrooms, offices, community hubs and a research wet lab, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences says in a news release.

The lab corridor area of the building will be on the second floor and will have windows that will enable guests to view lab experiments. 

Funds for the project will come from the state, $30 million was approved through a general obligation bond during the 2020 general election and another $2.5 million that was most recently approved during the legislative session this past spring. The university is covering the additional project costs.

The new building is expected to be completed in 2024. 

Enterprise Builders is the general contractor and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini is the architect.
