Florida Atlantic University Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute
PGAL is providing design services for the new 60,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Florida Atlantic University Stiles-Nicholson Brain Institute.
The Jupiter Life Science Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science and the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College. The goal of the initiative is to enhance education and foster research in the life sciences while building partnerships with local research institutes, including the Max Planck Florida Institute.
The new facility helps address the University’s need for modern research and teaching labs, and also houses faculty offices. Located outside the campus’s academic core, the design of this facility is progressive and emulates the innovative research that takes place within its walls. The three-story building includes a vivarium, research labs, research support spaces, classrooms, gathering spaces for natural collaboration, and faculty offices. Research labs are designed for maximum flexibility and future reconfiguration to support dynamic trends in research.
