BSA Lifestructures

Engineering Innovation Hub

Fitzpatrick Hall

The idea of bringing high-end fabrication to the University of Notre Dame campus became Peter Kilpatrickā€™s, the Dean of the McCloskey School of Engineering, vision for the currently underutilized engineering laboratory and library spaces occupying the first floor of the Cushing building in the Cushing Fitzpatrick complex. High-end fabrication means that a product can come to market once it has been through the design and idea manufacturing process that will be part of the College of Engineering and Technology at Notre Dame.

BSA worked with the university architect, the school of engineering deans, and core users of the project to understand the project’s needs and desires. Our team provided a schematic design to help the group visualize a space that would help contact potential donors for project funding for the next phase of the project.
