The centerpiece of SOM’s master plan for the UConn Technology Park, IPB building serves as a magnet for innovation and an engine for economic development where blue chip and startups companies can collaborate with UConn faculty and students on advanced product development, biomedical engineering, and advanced information systems. The building is organized into three primary parts: a flexible tenant laboratory and incubation volume, with wet and dry labs; a high bay advanced manufacturing and additive materials wing; and an advanced characterization laboratory wing. The IPB building is targeting LEED Gold certification.
