MSU Board of Trustees approves FRIB office tower addition

Today, the MSU Board of Trustees approved construction for a new FRIB office addition, east of the most recent office tower addition. The new office tower will house both permanent FRIB staff and visiting researchers. The six-story addition will be approximately 74,000 square feet and will provide private and open offices, as well as flexible laboratory and collaborative space, including conference rooms and a 265-seat lecture hall. The project involves demolishing an existing one-story building to construct the new tower. Demolition starts this month, and the goal is to occupy the new addition in August 2016.
