EVANSVILLE — Indiana University says it has received proposals from four development teams interested in building a new IU Evansville med school campus.
On Friday, IU confirmed it had received complete proposals from Browning Construction Inc. and Duke Realty Corp., both based in Indianapolis; Skanska HealthRealty, based in Nashville, Tenn.; and the University of Southern Indiana’s Office of Finance and Administration.
The deadline for proposal submissions was Jan. 31.
Leading up to that deadline, four entities declared their intent to submit proposals. The city of Evansville, which is partnering with Skanska HealthRealty, is pitching a Downtown site. The other three entities are USI, Martin Development and Warrick County.
The project will include a new campus for IU’s medical school, which currently is housed at USI; plus a high-tech simulation center. USI, the University of Evansville and Ivy Tech also plan to offer a variety of health science programs at the site.
IU’s board of trustees is expected to select its preferred proposal and award the project contract at its April meeting in Bloomington.
Construction is expected to begin in 2015. July 1, 2017 has been set as the tentative occupancy date for the project.
