The $45 million PACCAR Environmental Technology Building, a 96,000-square-foot facility delivered by the design-build team of LMN and Skanska, houses five of WSU's longstanding research and development centers, all dedicated to tackling multifaceted engineering, science, technology, and societal issues through interdisciplinary collaboration. CEE faculty, graduate students, and staff play major roles in these centers and are housed in the new building equipped with state-of-art facilities. These centers are: Center for Environmental Research, Education, and Outreach (CEREO), Composite Materials Engineering Center (CMEC), Institute for Sustainable Design (ISD), Laboratory for Atmospheric Research (LAR), and the State of Washington Water Resources Center (SWRRC).

PACCAR is the first phase of the university's plan to expand its campus core to the east. The building is newly occupied and will have an official opening ceremony early next year.
