The brand-new (July 2016) Center for Collaborative Research at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida, features a set of 4 LUMICHRON tower clocks, each 7-feet in diameter. The clocks are synchronized with a GPS antenna, and the clock hands and hour numbers are illuminated with LED’s. The illumination turns on at dusk and off at dawn, according to the geographic coordinates of the clocks’ location. In addition, all 4 faces will always tell the correct time, and will be in exact synchronicity with each other, and will automatically adjust for daylight saving time or power interruptions.
Thank you to ANF Group, Inc., also of Davie, Florida, as well as Acai Associates, Inc. architects, for choosing LUMICHRON for this project. The 214,131-square-foot training research facility features full-service laboratories, parking garage and physical plant, and cost approximately $80 million to design and build. The innovative NSU-CCR Center will include offices for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to serve as headquarters for their involvement with the Everglades Restoration Project.
NSU is the largest, not-for-profit, private university in Florida, with hundreds of research projects currently underway, including studies on cardiovascular disease, anti-cancer therapies, chronic fatigue syndrome, autism, coral reef restoration, stem cells and wildlife DNA forensics.
