  • Vanderbilt University

    Vanderbilt University’s new Engineering and Science Building (ESB) brings the physical sciences and engineering together to expand interdisciplinary research in biomedical engineering, energy, and materials; recruit faculty in areas of nanotechnology and environmental engineering; and create a new undergraduate research-focused culture on campus.

  • UMass Amherst Uses Equipment List to Drive Phased Buildout of Core Labs

    The University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass Amherst) recently completed the construction and fit-out of their new Life Science Laboratories after receiving a $95 million grant from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC)—a quasi-state agency dedicated to growing the state’s life sciences industry. The new interdisciplinary research wing features state-of-the-art equipment and core resources that will be shared across multiple research teams and industry partnerships. While the new core labs were built into a pre-existing shell with an open floorplate and operational MEP, the final design was driven by the cost-intensive equipment list. Since the agency grant designated a specific amount of funding for the equipment, the type of equipment was known but exact model and vendor was not known before many of the other design and programming decisions were made.

  • The University of Texas at Dallas is constructing a 200,000-gsf engineering facility on its Richardson campus.

  • The University of Nottingham broke ground on the 97,000-sf Advanced Manufacturing Building in November of 2016 in the United Kingdom. G.F.

  • The U.S. Department of Energy opened the Laboratory for Plasma Nanosynthesis in July of 2016 in New Jersey.

  • The University of Sydney opened the AUD$150 million Sydney Nanoscience Hub in April of 2016.

  • Penn State’s Millennium Science Complex Provides Cutting-Edge Materials and Nanofabrication Capabilities to Thousands of Researchers

    Penn State University’s Millennium Science Complex is a state-of-the-art 297,000-sf facility that combines the Materials Research Institute with the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences to create an interdisciplinary research center for advancing science through diverse relationships. The facility serves as a valuable equipment and resource hub for thousands of researchers from Penn State and other organizations—including academic, government labs, and industry—who are at the leading edge of materials science, nanofabrication, and other disciplines.

  • Harvard University is planning to build the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in Allston, Mass.

  • Early Modeling Saves Upfront and Operational Costs

    Just as building information modeling (BIM) can prevent contractors from laying one exhaust duct in the path of another, BIM can ensure that research-critical tools, sensitive to electromagnetic interference (EMI), are not destined for a room next to the elevator.
