Northeastern University broke ground in June of 2018 on a $60 million research facility in Burlington, Mass. Located on the Innovation Campus, the three-story, 104,000-sf facility will provide research labs, a meeting area for workshops, and a maker space with 3D printers and other prototyping technologies. Designed by EYP Architecture & Engineering to foster collaboration between students, faculty, and government and industry partners, the project will also house the Biopharmaceutical Analysis Training Laboratory and a rooftop observation deck for drone flight monitoring at the adjacent UAV site. Northeastern’s Innovation Campus is anchored by the George J. Kostas Research Institute for Homeland Security and the new building will accommodate research programs in security, defense, critical systems, and advanced materials. Completion is expected by summer of 2019.
