TULSA, OK — Dewberry, a privately held professional services firm, announces that the new North Academic Building at Oklahoma State University’s (OSU) Center for Health Sciences campus is now under construction and is expected to open in fall 2022.

Dewberry completed initial programming and conceptual design for the new North Academic Building and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (ME) in 2018. By relocating and upgrading services from multiple buildings currently in the center of campus, this new building is the first phase of a master plan focused on health and advancement in research and education. Once complete, the ME office will be one of just a few nationally that is directly and physically connected with an academic health center.

The design of the ME autopsy laboratory is unique to Oklahoma, and has raised the bar internationally for safety, workflow efficiency, and evidence preservation. When completed, this office will be among the most technologically advanced in the world specific to advanced postmortem diagnostic imaging. This new building will also house the Center for Rural Health, Center for Health Systems Innovation, and dedicated anatomy and neuro-anatomy laboratories. Additional amenities will include classroom, conference, study, and administration areas. The firm’s designs incorporate a similar material palette in the interior and exterior as the A.R. and Marylouise Tandy Medical Academic Building, completed in 2017, and expand the aesthetic connecting the new and older parts of the campus.

“As OSU continues to provide top-tier education and training for students across a variety of subjects, the Center for Health Sciences has an opportunity to set the university apart as a nationally ranked health care training institution,” said Dewberry Principal and Project Manager Bruce Henley, AIA.
