UHCL New STEM and Classroom Building
Uh Facilities Planning has been recognized with a 2019 Landmark Award, education category, for their work on the UH-Clear Lake STEM Building. The award, presented during the 25th anniversary Landmark Awards dinner, recognizes those projects that create the foundation of the Houston area’s landscape. The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math building is a state-of-the-art, 121,000-square-foot Science, Technology, Engineering and Math building featuring 13 faculty research labs, 15 teaching labs and a 100-seat tiered lecture hall, the construction of which had been highly anticipated by UH-Clear Lake’s College of Science and Engineering.
While the entire UH project team, along with the architects, engineers and contractors, had a hand in the project’s fulfillment, UH Facilities Planning was recognized for their contributions. UH Facilities Planner, Constance Hammack, is one of the many people involved in the creative planning process which led to the award recognition. As Hammack explained, once the initiating construction documentation is finalized, her role as a Facilities Planner begins. This requires an average of 12-18 months to process the building’s furniture, color palettes, and the overall collective design which includes the coordination and purchase in order to receive all pieces on time and in place, ready to go.
Hammack is very proud to have been a part of the University’s planning team which received the award and is also happy about the amount of recognition UH-Clear Lake was given. Hammack said of the project’s success, “I think it’s going to be a really amazing space. And I know that the faculty and students are really enjoying it and a great moment for UH to shine. To me, there is nothing greater than that”.
