Carnegie Mellon University is constructing a $75 million replacement facility for the Alan Magee Scaife Hall of Engineering in Pittsburg. More than doubling the size of the original building, the 120,000-sf structure will provide technology-rich research labs, flexible classrooms, and spaces for formal and informal collaboration. The five-story facility will strategically collocate investigators from different disciplines to accelerate innovation in emerging fields such as robotics, intelligent systems, and autonomous vehicles. KieranTimberlake is the architect for the project with Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant. Construction began in March of 2021 and occupancy is expected in fall of 2023.
Carnegie Mellon is also planning to build a $210 million science facility and a $105 million athletics hub. Additionally, a robotics innovation center and a manufacturing futures institute will be constructed on the site of a former steel mill at Hazelwood Green.
