The University of North Dakota's (UND) Robin Hall opened last year as the tallest building in Grand Forks and the headquarters for the unmanned aircraft systems programs at UND's nationally acclaimed John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. The new building's sleek, light-filled design features curtainwall and storefront systems from Tubelite Inc. to meet the structure's modern aesthetic, sustainability goals and performance requirements.
The $22 million, 72,000-square-foot aerospace research facility was designed by ICON Architectural Group. Olaf Anderson Construction served as the general contractor. After more than a year of construction, the first students arrived in autumn for the 2016-17 academic year.
