The MD Anderson Laboratory project consisted of the construction of a new 29,000 SF research laboratory building and upgrades to the site and infrastructure. Spire performed cost estimating services at the request of the program manager for Phase I of The University of Texas MD Anderson Smithville Laboratory Building IV project. The project features bio-science research laboratory facilities, including a vivarium, support, office, and meeting facilities. Spire’s estimate was used to validate costs provided by an outside contractor.
