Georgia Southern University

Center for Engineering and Applied Research

JE Dunn Construction completed a $49 million comprehensive teaching and research facility for the engineering programs at Georgia Southern University. The new, 135,000 SF building is the largest non-athletic building on campus and provides a new home for the university’s growing Manufacturing Engineering department.

The CEAR building is four stories and offers advanced equipment and technology and promotes collaboration among engineering disciplines as well as interaction among students, faculty, and researchers. The facility features 33 unique laboratories for additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) and robotics and automation. Other spaces include a 1,000 kV electrical lab, a photovoltaic cell lab and a nanomanufacturing lab.

The new facility also includes a high bay multi-user research lab with 12 uniquely designed utility trenches for air, power, plumbing and data services. This space is flush with natural light, with a balcony overlooking the mechanical penthouse.
