The contractor for the new 102,000-square foot facility that will house Duke’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, the School of Medicine’s Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program, School of Nursing, and Interprofessional Education and Care, has been able to expedite the steel erection for the new building. If the weather cooperates, they are scheduled to be finished by July 25th - a month earlier than expected. All construction is scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2019.

The final, 8-foot-long beam is available for people to sign, from 12:00 p.m. on July 18, through 5:00 p.m. on July 24, 2018 in the School of Nursing Courtyard (in the center of the courtyard) at 307 Trent Drive.
