The Energy Innovation Center successfully positions the University of Wyoming as a leader in energy education and research. Primarily a research facility, the state-of-the-art, 45,000-sf building contains the Peabody Energy Advanced Coal Technology Laboratory; the Arch Coal Research Offices; the Cordillera Energy Partners Reception Area; the Shell 3-D Visualization laboratory, including the four-wall CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment); the BP Collaboration Center; the Ultra Petroleum Corporation Student Area; the Encana Auditorium; the WPX Drilling Simulator teaching laboratory; the Enhanced Oil Recovery Research Laboratory; the Hess Digital Rock Physics Laboratory; the Reservoir Characterization Suite; the Marathon Oil Research Offices; the ConocoPhillips Collaboration Room; and the Questar Conference Room. Six ultramodern laboratory spaces, making up approximately 12,000 sf of the building, are rapidly reconfigurable to accommodate changing research needs. Rimrock provided technology design and construction administration services for the IT, telecom, audiovisual, access control, video surveillance, and wireless systems and infrastructure.
