UC Irvine set to start construction on $185-million health sciences complex

UC Irvine will begin construction this month on a state-of-the-art 9-acre health sciences complex for integrative patient care, training and research, the university said Monday.

The initial work will be site preparation, with groundbreaking expected later this year, probably in the fall, according to university spokesman Tom Vasich.

The site — on the corner of Bison and California avenues adjacent to the UCI Research Park — will include a five-level, 108,200-square-foot building for the Susan and Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences and an adjoining four-level, 71,500-square-foot building for the Sue and Bill Gross School of Nursing. The health sciences building will house the Susan Samueli Integrative Health Institute.
