The University of Wyoming opened the $105 million Engineering Education and Research Building (EERB) in September of 2019 in Laramie. Designed by ZGF Architects to provide maximum flexibility, the 110,000-sf facility leverages drop-down utilities and services to create reconfigurable labs for collaborative teaching and research. The four-story project features the Student Innovation Center, a maker space with prototyping, fabrication, and 3D printing technologies. The EERB also offers an interdisciplinary fluids teaching lab, a drilling simulation center, an advanced combustion suite, three active learning classrooms, an entrepreneurship hub, and labs for robotics, materials science, bioengineering, and augmented and virtual reality. The project team included Research Facilities Design (RFD) as laboratory design consultant, GSG Architecture as associate architect, and GE Johnson Construction as construction manager at risk. Ground was broken on the project in October of 2016.
