Ohio State University began construction in January of 2019 on the $59 million Biomedical and Materials Engineering Complex in Columbus. Featuring interactive laboratories for experiential learning, the five-story, 124,000-sf facility will provide an atrium, a 150-seat auditorium, two undergraduate computer labs, five classrooms, and open lab neighborhoods for faculty and graduate research. Designed to promote the translation of scientific discoveries into practical applications, the complex will include spaces to encourage entrepreneurship and collaborative development with industry partners. The interdisciplinary facility was designed by Perkins+Will and Moody Nolan to house the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Ruscilli is the construction manager for the project and the first phase is slated for completion in summer of 2020.
