The design and construction contract for what is envisioned to be “the premier private academic health center in Mexico and Latin America” was recently awarded to The Beck Group. The TecSalud Health Sciences Campus will be located at Tec De Monterrey’s flagship healthcare facility, Zambrano Hellion Hospital, in Monterrey, Mexico.

One of Mexico’s biggest construction projects, TecSalud will include two buildings covering 322,900 sf. The structures will house more than 30 classrooms and 12 laboratories. Plans also call for new simulation labs for the medical education program. The design will include flexible spaces that can be quickly adapted to differing needs of the healthcare industry.

Positioning the medical school near the Zambrano Hellion Hospital, which will be expanded, and new research facilities, will play a vital role in positioning the campus as a leader in healthcare education and delivery. It will further elevate Tec de Monterrey’s reputation as one of the world’s leading academic centers, according to The Beck Group. Three distinct groups—students, doctors, and researchers—will work within the same environment to tackle shared challenges and devise solutions.

Design is underway, and construction will begin next year. Completion is targeted for the summer of 2027.

Beck previously designed multiple projects at the Monterrey campus, including the Wellness Center and Banorte Stadium. The firm also designed and built the university’s academic buildings and library at the Mexico City campus.
