The Final Beam Tops Off the Refinery Building at The UA Tech Park at The Bridges

The Refinery's final steel beam took flight this month. The steel frame and concrete floors are coming to completion at The Refinery, topping off a building that will bring together innovative thinkers and accelerating world-changing inventions. The 120,000 square foot structure is the kickoff to the new UA Tech Park at The Bridges, an extension campus birthed from the success of the UA Tech Park near Interstate 10 and Rita Road. Construction at the UA Tech Park at The Bridges, just 3 miles south of the University's main campus, did not miss a beat due to the pandemic. Because of the endurance and resilience of our collaborators, The Boyer Company, Swaim Architects and Core Construction, The Refinery is set to open on schedule and on time during the fall of 2021.
