The University of Wyoming High Bay Research Facility is a 90,000-sq-ft geological research laboratory. This building consists of 2 wings—the west wing houses 19 CT scan labs and the associated support rooms for the internal research of rocks and minerals, including an electron microscope. The north wing holds offices and the High Bay Lab. In the High Bay lab, the strong wall is a four-foot-thick concrete wall made to assist in the breakup of rock and boulders.
For this project, U.S. Engineering installed the HVAC ductwork systems, including coated ductwork for the laboratory hoods. U.S. Engineering also installed the plumbing systems, including Domestic Hot, Cold & Recirculation.
Other features include lab-compressed air, vacuum and processed chilled water. This facility provides research and data for the petroleum industry in the state of Wyoming.
