Completed in the summer of 1995, the 100,000 square-foot Fluor Daniel Engineering Innovation Building furthers Clemson's contributions to engineering education and to the economic development of South Carolina. The building is named for the Fluor Daniel construction company because its employees, many of whom are Clemson graduates, contributed over $3 million to the facility. More than 325 donors, including those at Fluor Daniel, contributed a total of over $4 million in private gifts and equipment. One of the main features of the building is the high bay area, a two-story, 6,000-square foot multipurpose facility. Equipped with an overhead crane to facilitate the operation of large research equipment, the high bay area includes the research operations of a wind tunnel, mechanical test frames, squeeze-casting of metal-ceramic materials, and fluidized beds and machining equipment.
