Fluor Daniel Engineering Innovation Building
Clemson, South Carolina
Programming, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, Civil, Structural, Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering
This project was planned as a consolidated location for the graduate programs for Mechanical and Electrical Engineering with emphasis in the fields of robotics, fluid dynamics, materials testing, and computer engineering.
The building used office wings to frame the adjacent courtyard for the School of Civil Engineering. A 3-story atrium space along this courtyard was designed to use day lighting as a major design element and to promote interaction among the students, faculty, and staff within the building. The core of the building houses the four floors of engineering laboratories on a 10'-8" by 27'-0" building module with administrative offices located in pods along the north and south faces of the building core and the high bay lab on the ground floor and adjacent to the laboratory core.
This project was completed by Kenneth M. Betsch, AIA, while a Principal with Odell Associates, Inc.
