UD College of Health Sciences

The first facility constructed for the UD Health Sciences Complex, this state-of-the-art research facility stands on the grounds of the former Chrysler Assembly Plant in Newark, DE.

“The transformation of the former Chrysler facility into the state-of-the-art facility that will be the home for clinical spaces, classrooms and research laboratory spaces will shape the future of science and technology at the University and in the region.”

Located on the 272-acre Science Technology and Advanced Research (STAR) Campus, the Health Sciences Complex project involves the complete transformation of the former Chrysler Assembly Plant into a word-class research institution.

Phase One of the overall project involved the construction of a 103,000 square foot College of Health Sciences facility for the University of Delaware. The $20MM facility features cutting-edge laboratories encompassing the latest in medical technology for advanced research in health sciences; including Biomechanics and Bioengineering Labs, PT Motion Analysis Labs, Wet Labs, Clinical Examination Rooms, an Anatomy Lab, a Bone Density Suite, and a Robotics Fabrication Lab.

Over the course of this fast-tracked project, Bancroft managed approximately $2.2 MM of construction activity per month. The project was completed on time and within the established budget. For the development of the Health Sciences Complex, Bancroft formed a partnership with Delle Donne & Associates.
