On November 20, 2017, Carnegie Mellon University and the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing Institute (ARM) broke ground on a new hub for manufacturing technology on the iconic Hazelwood Green site, entering a new chapter in Pittsburgh’s resurgence as a global leader in innovation.
Highlights from the event included additive and robotic manufacturing demonstrations and remarks from speakers including U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle, CMU's Interim President Farnam Jahanian, Director of Manufacturing Institutes for the Department of Defense Tracy Frost, Pennsylvania Secretary of Community and Economic Development Dennis Davin, Hazelwood Green Project Director Rebecca Flora and Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto. The event culminated with participants signing a steel sculpture that will be placed in the lobby of the new building, aided by special robot guest Igor of HEBI Robotics. During the sculpture signing, a large banner featuring one of the renderings of the new building rose in the background.
