  • area / size 30,405 sqft
  • Completed 2020
  • BSA LifeStructures was tasked with completing the Martin C. Jischke Hall Innovation Wing to accommodate the engineering growth at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.

    The Purdue College of Engineering continues to experience unprecedented growth. As part of that growth, the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering continues to rapidly expand its scope and impact as an academic discipline. The Innovation Wing addition promotes increased interdisciplinary synergies across campus and strong working partnerships with medical device companies, fostering regional economic growth and the creation of new jobs.

    BSA designed the current facility in 2006 in a way to allow a seamless future expansion which is being realized today. The original building was designed to accommodate an expansion to the east end of the building toward Herrick Labs.

    The design team also incorporated the goals of the 2017-2022 Strategic Plan to make the facility a state-of-the-art platform for novel research, technology innovation, hands-on and on-line instruction, and outreach to current and new company and health-care partners.
