The Center for Manufacturing Excellence is housed in a new building located between two of the buildings of the School of Engineering (Carrier Hall and Old Chemistry) on the Lyceum Circle. The 47,000 usable square-foot building has three floors. The first floor houses a 12,000-square-foot “factory floor,” along with three classrooms; the other two floors include office and meeting space for faculty and students. The factory floor have a central assembly area and a final finishing area in addition to three main manufacturing lines: wood, plastic and metal.
Construction started on March 16, 2009 and is expected to be fully complete by July 2012, although the CME occupied the building starting fall 2011.
