Collaboration and Innovation at Our High Bay Research Facility.
The High Bay Research Laboratory in the NRCCE building provides adaptable and easily reconfigurable space for one or more projects. The facility supports multi-scale research and is ideal for demonstrations of early-stage technologies. Collaboration is fostered by the unique building features with laboratory, storage, and meeting spaces within the building.
The 4,000 square-foot high bay wing of the NRCCE building features a ceiling height of 34 feet at the main level. The facility is outfitted with a 10-ton bridge crane and a loading dock that allows trucks access into the building. The facility also includes a control room and additional specialized space for storing gas cylinders and non-flammable chemicals.
WVU faculty and industry partners have a variety of options for retaining space when available. Space will be provided on an “as is” basis. Space users must demonstrate the capability of providing funds for alteration, equipment and materials requirements, start-up costs, and decommissioning costs.
