ATLANTA (April 26, 2011) The University of South Florida, a leading public research university, now has its very own Materials Research Facility. Last month, Carter completed the second floor buildout of the facility located within the existing Interdisciplinary Research building at the USF Research Park of Tampa Bay. This new space fosters collaboration between the Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and Computational Theory programs in the new 26,000-square-foot building. With 17 labs and additional workspace, this state-of-the-art facility is designed for interdisciplinary partnership on scientific experiments.
The project, which began in March 2010, is the first space of its kind for the university. In addition to the various labs, the floor provides workspaces for further collaboration with various workstations located throughout the space. This project reflects the continuing partnership between Carter and USF that began in 2004. Carter has worked with the university on developing two buildings in the Research Park in addition to a medical office building development. We look forward to continuing our relationship with USF.
