The new Applied Research Building (ARB) is envisioned to be a multi-story building that will be a "core facility" providing new and regionally unique capabilities for the University, while consolidating a number of strategic cross campus interdisciplinary programs in one location to meet current research needs while also providing flexibility for future endeavors.
The ARB will focus on applied research programs in support of the University's Strategic Plan, Pillar 2 - Grand Challenges.
The building will have a mix of space types including high bay payload assembly areas, a large scale thermal vacuum chamber, varying types of laboratories, clean rooms, faculty offices, collaboration spaces, and conference rooms.
The ARB will be located at the southeast corner of Helen Street and the Highland Corridor. The Highland Corridor will be improved and realigned as part of this project to provide safer pedestrian and bicycle crossings at Helen Street.
This project is currently in the Design Development phase.
