Office and Meeting Spaces
Dedicated rooms for control, instrumentation, and data analysis are located on the first floor of the building north of the test floor. Staff offices are also located on this level.
Offices line the north end of the high-bay laboratory on the second and third levels, overlooking the lab floor. The offices are for graduate students and visiting scholars conducting research in earthquake engineering. Meeting spaces include a telepresence-equipped conference room on the second floor and an informal collaborative workspace on the third floor.
Our new facility also includes a 140-seat auditorium located immediately to the north of the offices. Equipped with a video wall and broadband Internet technologies, this auditorium will be a virtual window to the nation and world, allowing students and researchers to experience the damaging effects of earthquakes and participate in off-site research projects in real time.
