[Mobile, AL] – White-Spunner Construction, Inc. announces topping out at the 185,000 square foot Allied Health and Nursing facility. A major milestone in the construction process, the topping out ceremony marks the end of ten months of construction on the structure of the building and clears the way for work on the exterior envelope and interior of the building. Slated to open in the summer of 2009, the $41 million facility brings health sciences back to the main campus and will provide spacious, modern classrooms, research labs, simulations labs, x-ray rooms, auditory booths, faculty offices, and a working clinic. “This project brings our expertise in healthcare and institutional construction together in one project in our own home town,” says President Mike Fitzgerald. “The topping out ceremony gives us an opportunity to thank our staff and sub-contractors for their impeccable safety record and hard work so far.” “The new USA Health Sciences Building will offer a wonderful space for our nursing and allied health students to learn and hone their skills,” said USA VP for Health Sciences Dr. Ronald Franks. “We are excited to have our nursing and allied health students back on our main campus and look forward to the synergy of having these students close to both our medical school and biomedical library.”
