Advanced Engineering Research Building
Start: January 2013
Completion: March 2015
The new Advanced Engineering Research Building will add 22,000 square feet of flexible and environmentally safe new laboratory and research space as well as an 8,000 square feet clean room to meet the needs of high-technology learning and discovery in the new millennium. Offices, classrooms, computer classrooms, learning center, and graduate student space will use 29,000 square feet in the new building. The new building will be 60,000 assignable square feet with an unfinished space for future completion of 15,000 square feet. The building will form a key quad border in addition to the agricultural science building, the Evansdale Library, NRCCE, and ERB. It will be 4 stories total and 95,000 GSF. The building will be fully integrated into the utility infrastructure for the Evansdale Campus and will have energy efficient systems.

When construction starts, a fence will be erected around the entire site. The circular drive in front of the Evansdale Library and the gravel parking lot behind Ag Sciences will be closed and eventually eliminated by this project. The main pedestrian sidewalks around this project will remain open.
