Built to house an inferno: The NIST National Fire Research Laboratory

The newly expanded National Fire Research Laboratory (NFRL) at NIST allows researchers to study how entire office buildings, hospitals and bridges react to fire under controlled laboratory conditions. This extraordinary nearly 2,000 square meters (21,400 square feet) research facility provides the means to greatly strengthen the scientific basis for improved fire protection standards and new innovations in building materials and design.
