Freese and Nichols designed and provided construction phase services for a Nanotechnology research facility for the University of Texas at Arlington. The Center for Nanostructure Materials and Quantum Device Fabrication, or NanoFab, is one of only six facilities in the United States where researchers and scientists construct devices atom-by-atom.
The completed $5 million renovation includes classrooms, labs, offices and support spaces. One of the most unique challenges was creating this facility inside the shell of the former university bookstore.
This project was named to American School & University's Architectural Portfolio in the 'Outstanding Buildings: Specialized Facilities' category.
