Got Lab?

No, not a dog, a research lab for testing large structures.  South Dakota State University opened the Jerome Lohr Structures Laboratory on March 15th.  From the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader:

The lab is the only one in the state and unique to the upper Midwest for testing large structural pieces of material for strength and endurance. A 24,000-square-foot addition was built onto Crothers’ southeast corner for the lab.

Like Jerry Lohr, I’m a proud graduate in civil engineering from SDSU.  Unlike him, I don’t own an award-winning winery[*1] .
