Faulkner University begins final construction phase of health sciences facility

Oct. 25, 2023
The university says the building will match the collegiate and professional styles of the buildings on the Montgomery, Alabama, campus.

Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama, has broken ground on the final phase of construction on a facility for the College of Health Sciences.

The university says the final phase of construction will include a complete “brick and mortar” facelift of the college building itself, a reworking and landscaping of the parking area and the addition of a bridge that will connect the main campus with the east campus, where the College of Health Sciences is.

“Artistic renderings reflect the updated façade will match the collegiate and professional styles of the buildings on the main campus,” President Mitch Henry said.

Preliminary planning and construction permits have been completed, and approval has been granted from the Department of Public Health.

The reworking of the parking area and front entrance will include a concourse and a porte-cochere, or carport area, directly in front of the building so patients can enter the free therapy clinic with ease and be shielded from the elements.

The concourse will connect to the bridge, which will cross the drainage channel near the Faulkner Law building and end at the Rotunda. The plan for the bridge consists of two lanes for pedestrian traffic and an eight-foot sidewalk, wide enough for a golf cart.

While construction is underway, classes will continue as normal. The College of Health Sciences health clinic will continue to provide services during this time as well.

Construction of the bridge is planned to begin January 2024 and end April 2024.
