This 13-story, $41 million Faculty Center consolidates the administration efforts of the nationally recognized institution into one building on the main campus of the Cancer Center. The precast concrete and glass exterior design reflects the architectural images of the adjacent Jesse H. Jones International Rotary House, a hotel for families who are hospitalized at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. A pedestrian skybridge links the two buildings. A design-build process was utilized to achieve occupancy within just 21 months from the start of design to construction completion.
