SBS Continues PMO Relationship with UConn with New Engineering and Science Building Project

November 25, 2014

SBS continues its longstanding relationship with the University of Connecticut with its recent appointment to provide administrative and technical project management oversight support during the construction and post construction/closeout phases of the University's New Engineering and Science Building project.

The new Engineering & Science Building has been planned to be built to LEED "green" standards and will provide a state-of-the-art facility within the heart of UConn's Storrs campus. With a planning budget of $92.5 million, the new building will encompass approximately 115,000 gsf and include classrooms, offices, and high-tech laboratory space for what is known as trans-disciplinary research, in which researchers from different fields work in teams and blend their expertise for innovative outcomes.

For instance, the new complex will include space for bio-nano engineering, which blends nanotechnology and biomedical research in search of innovations that improve health care. Chemical engineering, cyber-physical systems engineering, and other sciences will also be among the research focus areas there.

Having these state-of-the-art facilities will catalyze research advances in convergence technologies, University officials say. They also anticipate that the much-needed space will drive innovation, help attract talented faculty and students, and support the momentum that UConn has already gained toward becoming a leader in the sciences and emerging technologies.
