Merrimack College and DSK collaborated to take an empty floor plate and create a series of flexible incubator spaces. The Innovation Center includes the following:
• Writers House
• Markets Lab
• Flexible Learning Environment
Often host to external visitors and speakers, the Innovation Center spaces are large, flexible rooms, in use for specific programs but easily adaptable long term. Writers House is a platform for both outreach to the local authors and speakers and also a comfortable space for internal events. Markets Lab currently houses Bloomberg Terminals, easily reconfigurable as business technologies change. The Flexible Learning Environment currently serves as an extra large classroom and meeting space, in use by a multitude of Merrimack programs. The Innovation Center kindles the spark of new and developing programs, providing flexible space that helps campus growth both long term and short term.
