The University of North Dakota in Grand Forks has selected local firm JLG Architects to design its new School of Medicine and Health Sciences. JLG will work in partnership with Perkins+Will and Steinberg Architects on the 378,000-square-foot building, which will house all of the medical school's educational, service, and research programs under one roof.
UND has formed a Site Recommendation Committee to study potential sites on campus and will make recommendations to university president Robert O. Kelley, who will make the final decision on the facility’s location. The site recommendation process is expected to be completed by July 15 and will involve community feedback.
"JLG, Perkins+Will, and Steinberg Architects have proposed and have the ability to design and build a new medical school facility that will make all North Dakotans proud,” Randy Eken, associate dean for administration and finance of the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, said in a statement.
