The University of Washington is constructing the $110 million Gates Center for Computer Science & Engineering in Seattle. Designed by LMN Architects to foster interaction and collaboration, the 135,000-sf facility will feature a 3,000-sf robotics lab, a 250-seat auditorium, a maker space, an undergraduate commons, and a wet lab. The building will also house capstone project rooms, teaching labs, classrooms, faculty offices, and a flexible event hall. The project team includes MEP engineer Affiliated Engineers, structural engineer Magnusson Klemencic Associates, and general contractor M.A. Mortenson, with Stantec as audiovisual, acoustical, and electrical consultant. Construction began on the project in early 2017 and completion is expected in December of 2018.
