The 260,000 sq. ft. Norman Hackerman Experimental Science Building at the University of Texas in Austin provides much-needed laboratory research space for academic and economic development initiative areas such as neuroscience, computational biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, and molecular and cellular biology. The project includes a 5,000 sq. ft. vivarium and 10,000 sq. ft. imaging lab in the 40 ft-deep basement.

Kelly Thibodeaux played an instrumental role

in taking on the challenge of developing the first Revit model for your office on our complex NHB project which was no small task.  Kelly has a positive ‘can do’ attitude and worked tirelessly to ensure that the development of the structural model kept up with the fast pace of the project and was fully coordinated as the project progressed.  We truly appreciate all of his hard work and the work of your top-notch team.
