Aim Higher

2014 Winter Projects

Wayne State and several neighbors will be implementing construction projects that will impact our daily activities. Two noteworthy projects on the University's campus are the Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (MBRB) and the Advanced Technology Education Center (ATEC) located in Warren.

 

The Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (MBRB) has been WSU’s priority one project submitted for Capital Outlay consideration since FY 2009, as a new research facility is critical to enabling WSU to participate in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) funding and initiatives.  WSU requested $90 million in Capital Outlay funding to partially cover its portion of the costs of the MBRB project, and in December, 2010, was conditionally awarded $30 million by the State of Michigan and was authorized to proceed with final programming and schematic design in accordance with State project development guidelines.  This new research facility is critical to enabling WSU to participate in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA) funding and initiatives, and will support 67 PI teams representing multiple program components.  The $92 million MBRB project includes the repurposing of the existing Dagleish Cadillac Dealership in TechTown with frontage on Cass Avenue, and an addition extending to the east boasting a Woodward  address to support the 207,000 square foot facility.  The project is scheduled to be occupied in January 2015. 

 

Multidisciplinary Biomedical Research Building

 

The Advanced Technology Education Center (ATEC) located in Warren, Mich., adjacent to Macomb Community College (MCC), will involve the renovation of an existing structure on the 3.5-acre site at 14601 East 12 Mile Rd.  The new ATEC facility will offer students in Macomb County the opportunity to attain four-year degrees in marketable academic programs such as engineering, computer science, business, advanced manufacturing and other disciplines, while providing collaborative opportunities with the business community in the area.
