Setty is providing Plumbing and Fire Protection design services for a new 200,000 GSF University of Maryland Computer Science Building.

The project is the new construction of a Computer Science Building to house the Department of Computer Science and the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS). This building will support the growth of the University’s computer science teaching and research programs, facilitate the integration of modern teaching and research activities into these programs, improve the ability of students and faculty to collaborate, and promote collaboration with industrial and community partners. This project will support Maryland’s and USM’s STEM initiatives and the 2010-2020 USM Strategic Plan’s goals.

The 108,000 NASF / 200,000 GSF building will contain office, instructional and research space, including state-of-the-art hacker space in which students, faculty, and industrial and community partners share knowledge and ideas via workshops, presentations and lectures, and work on projects individually or in collaboration. UMIACS brings together faculty from a variety of disciplines that use powerful computing tools to address some of today’s most pressing scientific and societal challenges in areas such as national defence, precision medicine, big data, cybersecurity and language and culture. This building will enhance their ability to collaborate with industrial and community partners and secure sponsored research grants.
