Since it was founded in 2000, The Universities at Shady Grove (USG) has grown from 14 undergraduate degree programs to over 80 degree programs. In order to accommodate even more regional businesses and STEMM (i.e., science, technology, engineering, math, and medical sciences) graduates, USG broke ground on a brand new 220,000-square-foot facility today.
The development, known as the Biomedical Sciences and Engineering Education Facility (BSE), will be USG’s fourth academic building. It was designed by the architectural firm Cooper Carry and its partner Lake/Flato. According to a press release, the facility will be one of the most sustainably sourced and built laboratory buildings in the country.
The facility will feature laboratories, collaborative learning spaces, clinical training facilities, academic offices, and expanded student services.
The delivery is slated for 2019.
