The 14,000-square-foot Rice Rivers Center Research Facility dramatically enhances researchers’ ability to conduct their work on-site and facilitates new collaborations. Researcher teams now have needed space and support facilities such as an environmental chemistry analysis laboratory and a geospatial data analysis laboratory. Meeting space also is provided for idea-sharing and regular lectures by guest scientists and environmental managers. The single-story building provides space for VCU faculty and staff focused primarily on river and wetland research.
