The Seton Medical Center at the University of Texas was a collaborative project that contributed to the newly developed UT Medical District in downtown Austin. The 517,000 GSF facility is the teaching hospital for Dell Medical School located at the University and is entirely new from the ground up. The facility replaced the University Medical Center at Brackenridge as a new modern integrated teaching hospital with the regions only Level I Trauma Center for adults. The hospital has 211 beds in operation and is designed to add up to 135 beds in the future. The Seton Medical Center attained LEED certification for Healthcare, as well as the Sustainable SITES Initiative through its use of innovative water quality controls, building design and campus interaction.

The GarzaEMC team provided full civil engineering design and coordination for the Seton Medical Center as well as support for the land lease, aerial bridge across E. 15th Street, existing Brackenridge parking garage redesign and upgrades.
