We kicked off the renovations of TFRB suites 113 and 108 began yesterday. The spaces previously held a wood shop and furniture studio. While it’s difficult to imagine the future from the pictures below, let me just say we’re excited! We’ll definitely give the cryogenics labs at Wisconsin and MIT a run for their money on low-stakes innovation spaces.

Remember the plan is to merge an outdoor hydrogen testing area with high bay fab area, helium liquefier, student design space, and library.

As a quick teaser, here’s a picture of flooring and desk systems that Kurt Hutchinson is innovating for the CougarShop and we plan to adapt to TFRB.
