One of the Latest finished projects of HOK
Auburn University Shelby Center for Engineering Technology
Auburn, Alabama, USA
This lovely facility supports Auburn’s efforts to recruit experienced faculty members, to draw high-achieving students into engineering programs and to improve the research efforts of existing programs.
The Shelby Center houses laboratories, classrooms and administrative areas for computer science and software engineering, electrical engineering, industrial systems engineering, aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering.
HOK’s design of the lab facilities provides opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in research projects early in their academic careers, preparing them for a future in the “real world” of engineering. The design takes advantage of the interest provided by the “hands-on” nature of these labs, helping to attract students to Auburn’s mechanical engineering programs.
Next big project to be
Tom Wilson, CEO of the Red Wings and president of parent company Olympia Entertainment, and sports architect George Heinlein, HOK’s principal-in-charge of the project, are the minds behind this revolutionary design and concept.
The project broke ground in September, and the arena is scheduled to open in 2017.
