The University of Maryland completed construction of the $169 million A. James Clark Hall in September of 2017 in College Park. Designed by Ballinger, the collaborative 184,000-sf facility houses the Department of Bioengineering and the Institute for Biomedical Devices. The multidisciplinary building offers flex classrooms, a vivarium, an atrium, flexible wet and dry labs, a high-bay innovation lab, and space for programs in biology, information technology, and mechanical engineering. Optical laser and imaging labs provide advanced instrumentation for digital fabrication, rapid prototyping, 3D printing, optics, and bioinformatics. Clark Construction Group broke ground on the project in November of 2014. Classes will commence in the facility in spring of 2018.
