The new Refinery building at the UA Tech Park at The Bridges is a great example of how this type of building provides the interface. This four-story, 120,000 square-foot office building is under construction by the Boyer Company and will serve as an innovation and commercialization hub anchored by UArizona providing the ideal platform for technology advancements and business growth. Activities include the University of Arizona Applied Research Corporation (UAARC); the new offices for Tech Launch Arizona, the University’s technology commercialization arm; an incubator outpost, and programming through the University of Arizona Center for Innovation; plus innovation space for students and faculty.
