Construction began on an expansion to the Biomechanics Research Building in Spring 2018. The building is expected to be completed in September 2019 and will include 30,000 square feet of additional lab and office space. The expansion will include a lecture hall, a much larger machine shop, a new 3D printing laboratory, Bioinspired Robotics laboratory, Outreach/Instruction space, and a new Virtual Reality laboratory to house the CAREN (Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) system.
