Building Construction

The O’Donnell Foundation had the wisdom to know that if they wanted to build a “state-of-the-art” hi-tech facility, they would need to construct it fast so that the technology would not be outdated once complete. To expedite the building process, they leased the land from the UT System for $1.00 and built the building as a private entity thus eliminating UT bureaucratic bottlenecks. The end result was an 18-month-long construction period. The completed and fully furnished¬†building was donated to UT Austin on July 26, 2000.
