The $75 million Florida Advanced Manufacturing Research Center opened in April of 2017 in Kissimmee. Created by the University of Central Florida in collaboration with Osceola County and the Florida High Tech Corridor Council, the 109,000-sf facility houses the world’s first industry-led smart sensor consortium. Featuring a flexible cleanroom with adaptable walls and flooring, the vibration-mitigated building houses a semiconductor foundry, a design center, and labs for the development of new technologies using integrated circuits. The center was designed by HOK and Abbie Gregg and built by Skanska USA. Construction began on the project in December of 2015.
