Construction of Center for Aging Infrastructure and S-BRITE Center
The S-BRITE Center is part of the larger Center for Aging Infrastructure (CAI). A current satellite image of the 22 acre CAI is shown inside the area of the red line. It is being developed in stages, with the first stage (about 10 acres) shown inside the blue line. Some of the individual research areas have also been built with potential for many more.
The final stage shown inside the yellow line will be developed as need arises. In the mean time, the area inside the yellow line can still be utilized for any research or training purpose that might require a large area, excavation, tree felling, or any other unique research or training request. The acreage could be transformed as needed.
Current Project Highlight: Power upgrade
December 2016: Installation of electrical outlets was completed along the northern border, as seen in the trench on the right. This provides 120VAC power outlets at nearly each of the research pads for power tools, data acquisition, etc.
