Six months after the groundbreaking, steel girders were erected in late November at the Galveston College Main Campus for the new three-story, 64,000-square-foot Health Sciences Education Center.
By the end of the week, in which the first girders were placed and secured, the frame for a portion of the Health Sciences Education Center structure was noticeable.
Construction of the new building is scheduled to be complete in fall 2023.
The new facility will house Galveston College’s Nursing and Allied Health programs and will be able to train a highly skilled health care workforce for Galveston Island and Texas.
