The University of Wyoming’s Energy Innovation Center (EIC) opened in December 2012 to support the University of Wyoming (UW) and the School of Energy Resources (SER) in achieving the mission of positioning Wyoming as a global leader in energy education, research and outreach. This state-of-the-art research and collaboration facility, includes 27,300 net square feet of highly technical research space, as well as office, classroom, and meeting space. Approximately 12,500 square feet of the EIC is designated for six rapidly reconfigurable, ultramodern laboratory spaces that will play a key role in advancing SER’s strategic areas of concentration.
As one of the most advanced research facilities at the university, the EIC will provide students, researchers, and academic professionals the opportunity to actively engage in, observe, and support advancements in sustainable energy technologies.
For this project, Lochsa Engineering provided design and detailing of exterior metal stud framing system, as well as light gauge framing shop drawings and calculations package for submittal.
