Ground breaks for NCSA building
Illinois officials broke ground for a $30 million, 142,000-square-foot building for NCSA staff and researchers.
The center has grown steadily, and the approximately 400 people employed by NCSA are housed in several buildings across the University’s campus, including the Beckman Institute Advanced Science and Technology and the Computing Applications Building.
“Uniting many of our people and projects at this state-of-the-art facility will enable an even greater level of collaboration and innovation,” Reed said. “A building for NCSA shows that both the state of Illinois and the University are committed to our continued success and understand the value that NCSA brings to the research community, the citizens of Illinois, and the statewide technology sector.”
