WVU's New Engineering Research Building to Open in Fall 2015


West Virginia University’s new Advanced Engineering Research Building is on track to open in the fall of 2015.

Associate director of design and construction John Thompson tells The Dominion Post that construction of the main building is completed. Faculty and staff will begin transitioning to the new building in the spring.

The four-story building will have offices, classrooms, a learning center and graduate student space. It also will have an 8,000-foot clean room for students working on nano-technology.

A clean room is an environment featuring purified air.
