Edgemoor served as the turnkey developer for this innovation building project, which contains 80,000 square feet of academic space, including classrooms and faculty offices; 80,000 square feet of research space; and 20,000 square feet of private lease space which creates an environment for collaborative research between the university and private sector.
Edgemoor managed the design and construction and also provided other turnkey development services, including testing, site coordination, inspections, utility coordination, move-in coordination, third party leasing, tenant fit-out and fundraising support. In addition, the project also included upgrades to the university's central utility plant. Edgemoor proposed several financing options to the client, but GMU received tax-exempt funding from the Commonwealth of Virginia to fund the project.
The Long and Kimmy Nguyen Building is the home of the Volgenau School of Information Technology and Engineering at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia and is the first university project to be delivered under the PPEA legislation in Virginia.
