The new 90,000+ square foot Applied Research Center (ARC) will house research and teaching laboratories, student design spaces, conference rooms, and faculty offices. The building will also provide study areas for graduate students and a small amount of administrative space.
A dedicated section of the center will assist with commercialization of innovation and applied research and send new inventions into the marketplace.
The two-story building is located on the northwest side of campus adjacent to the Innovation, Science, and Technology Building and is visible from Interstate 4 (I-4).
The ARC is Florida Poly’s second academic building. It was designed by the architecture firm HOK with the goal of creating a dynamic, functional, and flexible space that will promote research growth, entrepreneurship, collaboration, and connectivity.
