UT Campus Construction

The University of Tennessee campus is transforming, with $530 million in new construction in progress. MHM has been a significant team member in its evolution, working on projects that are in the final stages of construction as well as a few new projects that are in design. Ken and Blair Mossman Building and the second phase of the new Student Union are expected to open in Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 respectively. With the new UT Engineering Service Building and Neyland stadium on the boards, we are excited for what is to come!
