Project Description
 
The Collaborative Life Sciences Building and Skourtes Tower, a new allied health, academic and research building, provides retail space, academic classrooms, lecture halls, teaching laboratories, clinical skills and simulation laboratories, medical research laboratories, and two levels of underground parking.
 
Also part of the overall building project is OHSU’s new Skourtes Tower, housing the school of dentistry clinical training, clinics, and research spaces.
 
The two buildings together comprise 650,000 gross square feet of new construction in a 12-story building. The building is conceived as an innovative model of interdisciplinary health sciences education, research and education, engaging students, faculty and pedestrians through a concept of “health science on display.”
