Wright State University

Neuroscience Engineering Laboratory

Project Overview

Heapy provided professional engineering services to Wright State University for its new Neuroscience Engineering Collaboration (NEC) Research Laboratory building. The new facility adds capacity and effectiveness, and promotes collaboration between present neuroscience and engineering research facilities on campus.

The building is four stories, with a central atrium surrounded by collaboration spaces, office suites, graduate bullpen and an auditorium. Branching from the central atrium are two wings filled with laboratories, design to be efficient, flexible and adaptable, accommodating the variety of research activities happening within.

The NEC serves as a center for translational research and collaboration in the heart of WSU’s campus, with highly integrated laboratories, core resources, and interactive student spaces. The facility includes the following: biomedical research facilities, medical instructional laboratories, medical research facilities, lecture halls / auditoriums, clean room facilities, flexible configuration design and secure hazardous material bulk storage areas.

Plumbing Systems Re-Occupancy and Ongoing Operations

Your building may have been shut down these past many months due to WFH/COVID. Minimal use of your building’s water systems creates stagnant water in your plumbing system piping and equipment, which promotes the growth of Legionella and/or other biofilm-associated bacteria. This places your building occupants at risk when re-occupancy occurs. Now is the time to develop and implement a safe and effective Water Management Plan to protect your building occupants, maximizing their health and safety upon re-occupancy.
