SmithGroup has been selected to design the first academic building for Virginia Tech’s new Innovation Campus in Alexandria, Virginia.
SmithGroup was chosen from a pool of design firms who responded to a public RFP issued last summer. SmithGroup will provide full design services for the 300,000-square-foot building.
Part of a 65-acre mixed-use development and innovation district in National Landing, the facility will be the catalyst for the university’s four-acre Innovation Campus connecting students, researchers and the technology industry. The design will set the standard for sustainable and inclusive design for the university’s new campus.
“Virginia Tech is a leading university that is focused on making education more accessible,” said Higher Education Strategist, David Johnson. “Our designs share the same values of equity and inclusion that are at the heart of the university’s decision to expand its presence in Northern Virginia.”
