  1. UTHealth School of Allied Health Sciences At 7000 Fannin St. The UTHealth School of Biomedical Informatics began in 1973 as the University of Texas School of Allied Health Sciences. It provided certificate programs in technical arenas to post-bachelor’s students. Disciplines included biomedical communications (audiovisual production in the context of the health sciences); nutrition and dietetics; blood bank technology; histotechnology (preparation of tissue sample slides for examination by pathologists.) https://archives.library.tmc.edu/university-of-texas-school-of-allied-health-sciences
  2. In 1946-47 a study was conducted that concluded the following 10 institutions as members that make up TMC: 1. Baylor University College of Medicine 2. University of Texas Dental Branch 3. University of Texas School of Public Health 4. University of Texas Post-Graduate Medical School 5. M.D. Anderson Hospital for Cancer Research 6. Herman Hospital 7. Methodist Hospital 8. St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital 9. Tuberculosis Hospital 10. Medical Library of Houston Academy of Medicine Given the passage of almost 6 decades how many more institutions would you thank have become members & would the old TB hospital still be active or changed names and mission today?
  3. Mandated by the owner to be a flagship of sustainable design, criteria called for the project to: achieve a LEED Gold or Platinum rating and that half of its materials be of recycled content; reflect in its design the professional values of the user group; operate with less than 70 percent of the energy used by the adjacent School of Public Health; and not exceed by more than five percent the design and construction budget of a similar University of Texas System project. The mechanical system also contributes significantly to the building's energy efficiency by delivering conditioned air from a raised floor instead of the ceiling, thus cooling primarily the occupant zone rather than the space overhead. Air is moved in large quantities but at low speeds to reduce noise levels and friction, thereby decreasing internal heat gain. Operable grilles set in the floor allow individual occupants to manage air flow as desired. In addition, demountable office partitions and the sub-floor air conditioning system provide long-term flexibility by allowing reconfiguration of the office areas as needed. So far, operating costs have averaged less than 60 percent of that for the adjacent School of Public Health.
  4. I noticed we didn't have a thread for the UTHealth University Professional Building Parking Garage located at 6414 Fannin St. Wasn't there a remodel on this parking garage not to long ago?
