Fluke Hall, built in 1988, houses the UW NNIN Washington Nanofabrication Facility and the UW Center for Commercialization's New Ventures Facility. It was designed to foster and commercialize research of benefit to Washington state companies. The building was named after John M. Fluke, Sr. of the Fluke Manufacturing Company. The 73,000 square foot facility was designed by NBBJ and built by Sellen Construction Company for a cost of $15,800,000. NBBJ's exterior design tied the traditions of the past to the high tech endeavors of the future. The facility's west wing consists of brickwork and roof elements that conform with the traditional campus. The east wing reflects the industrial purpose of the building. The wing is clad in materials such as corrugated metal panels and stainless steel fasteners. An open concrete circulation spine joins the two wings.
