The first new building at the UA Tech Park at The Bridges is taking shape. The building is named “The Refinery” because of its proximity to the University where talent and bright minds can be mined by companies.

This four-story, 120,000 square-foot office building is well 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. The new building is on track to open in the fall of 2021.



Construction on The Refinery continues on schedule. The focus right now is on the continued erection of the steel and pouring of concrete on each floor. This will continue through the last week of January 2021 when the structure should be topped off. This is when you will see the last steel beam going into place. Following this, the construction team will then begin to enclose the building. Site work continues with the installation of the reclaimed water irrigation system. The main parking lot should be paved in the New Year and the landscaping throughout the parking lot will also be installed. The UA groups who are going to occupy the space are working with their architect on the design with construction slated to start in the spring.
