Authorities gave official start to the construction of the Bari II Building that will house the two USM basal centers

The five-level complex will house the two basal centers of the Institution, complementing the existing space and consolidating an axis of technological development and innovation in Cerro Placeres.

The five-level complex will house the two basal centers of the Institution, complementing the existing space and consolidating an axis of technological development and innovation in Cerro Placeres.

With the installation of the first stone, the construction of the Technological Innovation Building Bari II of the Federico Santa María Technical University began and, housing the research and innovation centers, will consolidate a pole of regional development that has been important at national international level.

Located next to the Campus Casa Central Valparaíso of the USM, the new building will house the two basal centers of the Institution, the Advanced Center for Electrical and Electronic Engineering (AC3E) and the Scientific and Technology Center of Valparaíso (CCTVal), complementing the set started with the existing Bari I Building, where the Biotechnology Center "Dr. Daniel Alkalay Lowitt "(CB-DAL) and the Center for Environmental Technologies (CETAM) of the USM, among other laboratories.

The construction will have 3,876 m2 on 5 levels, an Interior Plaza of 430 m2 and parking on two levels on an area of 1,200 m2, with a total of 5,076 m2. Also, following the culture of the University and the importance it gives to the green areas, the layout of a square with view is also contemplated to observe the coast and will finish off the street.

According to the USM rector, Darcy Fuenzalida, "moments like this are of pride for the community, because they demonstrate the ability of our Institution to generate spaces that allow the development of university work".

"The country requires that we take a step further, providing mechanisms that allow the application of knowledge developed for the benefit of society. That is what we can boost today by generating wider spaces like this, which already consider the logic of technological innovation. That is why this building has as its main purpose to house our two basal centers, "added the authority.

Connection with the community

For his part, the Vice Chancellor for Economic and Administrative Affairs, Gilberto Leiva, referred to the impact that Bari II is expected to have on the community of Cerro Placeres. "When we expand to the hill, we have to live with the neighborhood. We cannot generate disturbances, and that is what we try to do with both existing and new constructions. In this case, the idea is to maintain continuity in the height, so as not to obstruct the view ".

"We are going to create a space that will be a square, with green areas and ocean view, which will allow us to carry out multiple activities not only from our University, but also to extend ourselves to the rest of the community," he said. "We hope that this project serves as an instance of recovery of areas of the neighborhood that are neglected, not only for us, but for the entire community of the hill."

As Director of AC3E, academic Juan Yuz said that "for the Center it is a great joy to see this process. Having new dependencies and a broad common space in close proximity to the other Centers will allow us to create meeting instances so that students can get to know each other, know what is being done. It is there, when one gathers many capable and intelligent people, where more initiatives arise than what one can imagine. "

Finally, the Director of CCTVal, Iván Schmidt, emphasized that "after several years in which we have been scattered in many places, we will finally have a common place. The situation will change drastically and we will be able to do some things that today we are impeded. There are a series of activities that will be possible to do being closer, such as collaborate more, make better use of laboratories and organize talks, "said the academic

The creation of this pole of innovation and development of the USM began in 2007 with the construction of the Technological Innovation Building Bari I and is complemented in its current stage with the construction of the Bari II Building, both phases designed to be located in a respectful way with the existing neighborhood, respecting its morphology and with encouraging the linking with the community of Cerro Los Placeres.
