Notice of Commencement of Negotiations for Construction Manager At-Risk Services

Notice is hereby given for the seeking of interest and qualifications for Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR) services for the Wichita State University (WSU)-University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) Health Sciences Education Center. Please note that this project was previously advertised but did not have sufficient responses to proceed to short listing. Thus, the project is being readvertised.

The Health Science Education Center, a joint project between WSU and the KUMC, is envisioned as an interprofessional healthcare learning environment within a biomedical corridor the heart of downtown Wichita, Kansas. Architectural programming has identified the need for a 470,000 square foot building complex that co-locates all the programs and clinics at KU School of Medicine, KU School of Pharmacy, WSU College of Health Professions, and WSU Tech Health Professions. The facility will consist of classrooms, research labs, simulation labs, faculty/staff office space, academic home space, and outward facing clinic space. The design will progress with space efficiency in mind and will continue to identify opportunities for collaboration. Although a final building site is still in progress, WSU and KUMC will focus on sites located adjacent to an existing parking structure as the current program does not include creating new parking. The anticipated total construction cost for the facility is approximately $236 million with anticipated building occupancy in Fall 2026.

An architectural/engineering program is available at For more information contact Emily Patterson at 316-978-3444 or; or David Rau at 913-945-5943 or
