In a joint venture with Bordeaux Construction, W.M. Jordan Company provided general contracting services to renovate and expand the first floor of the existing, occupied RENCI (Renaissance Computing Institute) Telecommunications Building at Duke University. The result is the Technology Engagement Center, a vibrant hub for technology innovation and experimentation. The expanded Co-Lab Studio is a maker-space with three multi-use workshops featuring workbenches, multiple 3D printers, and fabrication equipment such as laser cutters and computer-controlled cutting machines. A multi-discipline, multi-media conference room with an 8K video wall and the Ideation Room, an interactive learning suite, promote collaboration and idea sharing. The center offers a recording studio with a green screen and four recording and editing suites.
