A. James Clark Hall featured in Context

Ballinger’s A. James Clark Hall at the University of Maryland, College Park was featured in the spring issue of Context, a quarterly magazine published by the Philadelphia Chapter of the AIA.

The 184,000 SF Clark Hall facilitates world class learning and discovery by bringing together students and faculty across the spectrum of engineering disciplines into a vibrant innovation environment. A “working commons” promotes student team-based collaboration, and flexible, transparent research laboratories enable world class convergent bioengineering research. In addition to active learning classrooms and dynamic laboratory environments, the inclusion of the Leidos Innovation Lab and Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices results in a unique co-mingling of education and entrepreneurship that facilitates the transition of research from the lab to the marketplace.

Ballinger presents A. James Clark to architecture students

Ballinger senior associate Nicholas Hollot, AIA, LEED AP gave a lecture and tour to students at the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. He presented an overview of A. James Clark Hall, the new bioengineering building on the University of Maryland College Park campus, and led a tour through the building.

Ballinger designed the 184,000 SF state-of-the-art facility and provided architecture and engineering services. It opened in the fall of 2017 and is home to the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices and Leidos Innovation Lab.

University of Maryland A. James Clark Hall Dedication

Ballinger attended the dedication for  A. James Clark Hall, a transformative bioengineering hub at the University of Maryland, College Park. The 184,000 SF building was designed by Ballinger to facilitate world class research and support Maryland’s growing population of engineering students. It will serve as a home for the Fischell Department of Bioengineering, the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices and shared instructional space for the A. James Clark School of Engineering. This unique integration of education, discovery and entrepreneurship enhances the student experience and facilitates the translation of research from the lab to the marketplace.

In addition to a tour for media, the dedication program included remarks from Maryland Governor Larry Hogan; Wallace D. Loh, President of the University of Maryland;  Robert L. Caret, Chancellor of the University System of Maryland; Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., Maryland Senate President;  Maggie McIntosh, Chair of the Appropriations Committee, Maryland House of Delegates; Courtney Clark Pastrick, Board Chair of the A. James & Alice B. Clark Foundation; and Darryll Pines, Dean of the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland.

The Ballinger architects, engineers and designers who led the project and were in attendance at the ceremony included: Principal-in-Charge William R. Gustafson, FAIA; Design Principal Craig S. Spangler, AIA; Engineering Principal Jonathan Friedan, PE; Project Manager Steve Wittry, AIA; Ben Patane, AIA and Nicholas Hollot, AIA.  “The building is a very unique campus place that we hope will inspire excellence in engineering learning, discovery and entrepreneurship for many generations to come,” said Spangler.
