Chastain-Skillman’s (CS) recent project for Florida Polytechnic University (FPU) was featured in LALToday. The 30,000-sf Citrus Innovation Center will include research labs, sensory experience settings and a citrus garden.

The Citrus Innovation Center is a public-private partnership between FPU and International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF). The Center will be occupied by the IFF, which will be the first company on the FPU campus.

CS is teaming with Ryan Companies on the project and is providing civil engineering design, permitting, and limited construction observation services.

Construction on the building started in October 2022 and is expected to be completed in late 2023.
