Temple University Multi-Purpose Health Science Center
Gilbane provided construction management services to deliver the new Multi-Purpose Health Science Center on Temple on time and within budget on a tight urban site.
Providing Temple University’s Medical School with a New Home for Research
Gilbane served as the construction manager for the Temple University Multi-Purpose Health Science Center. This building is the new home for Temple University Medical School’s biomedical research. It was built in a tight, urban setting and many aspects were coordinated so as not to disrupt the community. Components of this new state-of-the-art facility included:
- Animal quarantine spaces
- Feed/bedding storage
- Gross/anatomy dissection laboratory
- Cadaver cold rooms
- Behavior work rooms
- Animal behavior labs
- Animal holding rooms
- Animal procedure rooms
- Tissue culture rooms
- Cage washing
The building also included an inspiring and inviting commons area where up to 800 people can gather. The space is visible from Broad Street and is conveniently accessible for students, staff, and visitors.
“…I would like to take this opportunity to compliment Gilbane on consistently delivering quality projects within the University’s budgetary constraints. Gilbane has provided Temple with building and management teams that understand the importance of the projects to our end users and our sensitivity to the surrounding community”

Associate Vice President
Focusing on Communities in which we Work
Gilbane understands the impact that an active construction site can have on a community. The project was located in a residential neighborhood and Gilbane met with community members bi-weekly to inform them about progress, hiring opportunities, cleanliness, security, noise control, and to make sure all concerns were addressed.
