Timmons Group to Provide Civil Engineering Services for Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Richmond, VA | Posted on March 25th, 2009
The Gateway University Research Park is being jointly developed by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and NC A&T State University. The Research Park will provide opportunities for faculty and private companies to collaborate on unique research and development opportunities. Timmons Group is collaborating with HDR who is the architect for the JSNN Building.
Timmons Group is undertaking initial civil engineering, site planning and has developed some preliminary maps for the development of the new JSNN laboratory, which will be located on the South Campus. The new JSNN Building is slated to become the signature building on the South Campus, and will focus on conducting nanotechnology research and development.
Timmons Group was involved in the original master planning of the 75-acre South Campus along with BJAC and Sasaki. Timmons Group and BJAC recently completed the design of the USDA Research Building One, also located on the South Campus.
"Timmons Group is very excited to support the design and development of the South Campus, which will be the site for the new Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" said James Covington, PE, Principal at Timmons Group. "The Gateway University Research Park will be a key driver for encouraging long term economic development and establishing an environment for attracting future investments in research and technology innovations in the Triad."
