New renderings of the Controlled Environment Food Production Research Complex (CEFPRC) showcase the future home for interdisciplinary research connecting horticulture, engineering, entomology, pathology, food science, computer science, and human nutrition. The $35.8 million project is currently in the early stages of construction at the Waterman Agriculture and Natural Resources Laboratory.
January consisted of mobilization, site layout and staking. In February, the project team will begin rough grading the ground to ensure it is level, followed by the beginning of foundation work and the start of all associated underground utilities.
Progress continues on the Interdisciplinary Research Facility. Construction on the 305,000 square feet building began in the fall of 2020. It will serve multiple research disciplines, including biomedical, life sciences, engineering and environmental sciences, among others.
Crews are backfilling and compacting soil around the building foundation. Concrete pours continue including the installation of a loading dock.
View the photo slideshow above to track the project’s progress. The Interdisciplinary Research Facility is expected to be complete by the summer of 2023.
