The High Bay Lab is a multi-story lab, located in the Bergeron Centre. It is designed to test the strength of materials such as concrete.
The lab is engineered to withstand earthquake-level forces.
The lab includes professional-grade equipment for testing and prototyping, including an overhead crane that can support up to 12.5 tons.
The High Bay Lab is primarily used for the Department of Civil Engineering and is located centrally within the Bergeron Centre’s structural core.
The space has been constructed with a metre thick floor and walls perforated with steel anchor rods to control noise and vibration.
This allows researchers to conduct disruptive experiments within the Bergeron Centre.
