Mote Marine Laboratory recently entered the final stages of construction on its new coral research facility in the Florida Keys and remains on schedule to open the center in the spring. Contractors are currently lifting and assembling vehicle-sized pieces of precast concrete to complete the final sections of structural frame for the new International Center for Coral Reef Research and Restoration, located on Summerland Key. The new 19,000-square-foot facility will more than double the research and education space there, supporting more Mote scientists and visiting researchers from around the world.
