Looking Toward the Future

Stevens & Wilkinson, in association with design partner SmithGroupJJR, is working with Georgia Southern University on the design on their state-of-the-art Center for Engineering and Research (CEaR). CEaR will help the university as it seeks to better educate and develop the world’s best engineers of tomorrow. This new building will be the largest building on campus and will provide a new home for the university’s growing Manufacturing Engineering department. Additionally, the new facility will also provide additional support for the Mechanical Engineering program.

Uniquely Designed Laboratories

The Center for Engineering and Research, which is currently in design, will feature 33 unique laboratories for Additive Manufacturing (Metal 3D Printing), and Robotics and Automation. Design elements will also include high bay multi-user research bays with natural light, the use of nanomaterials, and a clean lab. In addition to supporting classrooms, office and student spaces, the building will provide a wide variety of research areas with views into the labs that will be used as showpieces for both the campus and the College of Engineering.

The new Center for Engineering and Research at Georgia Southern University will be the largest building on campus and will provide a new home for the university’s growing Manufacturing Engineering department. The design partner on the project includes SmithGroupJJR.
