The Texas Tech University Research Park Innovation Hub, Building #1 is a 40,000 sf research space that focuses on incubator laboratories and caters to the life sciences. Two grand entrances — one from the street/public side and another from the future research campus — connect with a central atrium. The atrium, which includes a recreational deck overlooking the lobby, provides views into the “activator labs” that support laboratory tenants in “speed to market” pursuits before garnering more permanent space. The main laboratory tenant spaces are modular in nature, offering tenants multiple size lab spaces supported by a central service corridor. The design encourages collaboration and cross pollination of the various activities and research that will take place in the building and on campus.

Kirksey, along with Hill & Wilkinson General Contractors, was selected to provide professional real estate development and design/build services for this unique mixed-use research and business campus. The facilities will be located on 120 acres and include research and technology space, business support centers, and amenities that will encourage interaction between park tenants, university faculty, and students. The buildings is certified LEED Silver.
