Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University John Mica Engineering + Aerospace Innovation Complex
As the first building in Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s new Research Park, the 50,000-square-foot aerodynamic laboratory expands the university’s visibility and connection to the community.
The state-of-the-art facility includes flexible laboratory space, leasable space to associated industries, business incubator space, a rooftop laboratory, and an 18,000-square-foot wind tunnel.
PGAL worked closely with the Dean of the College of Engineering in the programming of the laboratories and the development of collaborative research space. Meticulous design and project coordination ensured that all new equipment and building systems fit within space allocations while meeting the FAA’s building height restrictions to accommodate the neighboring Daytona Beach International Airport flight path.
