UofL announces new hub for next-generation engineering education, research

The University of Louisville has announced a new building that will serve as a hub for next-generation engineering education, research and student life, all aimed at driving the growth of Kentucky’s technology-enabled economy. 

The four-story, 114,000-square-foot building, sitting just behind the J.B. Speed School of Engineering complex on Eastern Parkway, will include classrooms, a makerspace, high-tech lab facilities and room for events and student engagement. The $90 million project is supported by $65 million in state funding and $3 million in private donations, with a fundraising campaign on-going to secure the balance. 

The facility was designed by Luckett & Farley in collaboration with SmithGroup and Whittenberg Construction is the general contractor. UofL is launching a fundraising campaign to secure remaining capital needed to complete the project. Learn more and donate at give.louisville.edu.
