MSB II Construction Update – Feb. 12

The Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso campus is abuzz with construction as crews work to erect the new Medical Sciences Building (MSB) II.

Once complete, the MSB II will triple the university’s research capacity, adding much-needed square footage for laboratory space, classrooms and offices. With the five-story, 219,900-square-foot building scheduled for completion next year, here’s a peek at the crews’ progress as they bring the building to life, day by day.
