Construction of Institute Hall is underway. The new $26-million facility will house the chemical engineering and biomedical engineering departments, and provide expanded research labs and facilities for the universityâ€™s partnership with Rochester General Health System. Institute Hall also will be LEED certified and illustrate RITâ€™s commitment to a sustainable world.
The building is envisioned to feature an atrium space with expanses of glass that will maximize day lighting to its interior, and use renewable building materials. Institute Hall is scheduled to open in fall 2011.
