If you have SQL Serer Data Tools (SSDT) available you can create a new database project, then do a schema compare between source db and empty target db, then execute all objects.  This will create the schema but not move any data.

There is no single T-SQL statement I know of to read schema from one database and copy it to another, other than to build a cursor with dynamic T-SQL to loop through all objects.

Take backup of the existing database and restore it where you need.
