The University of Washington is planning to build the Center for Advanced Materials and Clean Energy Technologies (CAMCET) in Seattle. Designed by CannonDesign, the 340,000-sf facility will feature wet, dry, and computational laboratories for clean energy and advanced materials research. The center will provide active learning classrooms, seminar and meeting rooms, collaboration spaces, and event venues, as well as offering startup lab modules, hot desks, and market-rate leasable spaces. Accommodating collaborative development with industry, academic, civic, and nonprofit partners, the project will house the UW Clean Energy Institute; the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds, an open-access prototyping facility; and the Northwest Institute for Materials Physics, Chemistry, and Technology (NW IMPACT) which is created in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Lab. CAMCET is the first building under consideration for the University of Washington's planned West Campus. Construction is slated to begin in fall of 2020.
