New Office Building
In 2010, Geodynamics broke ground on a customized office building to support our data processing center and house several research vessels. The new building includes many “green” components in an effort to reduce energy consumption and conserve natural resources: geothermal heating/cooling, extra insulation for energy efficiency, energy efficient light fixtures, plumbing for rainwater toilet flushing, low-impact development of parking areas, and low-VOC paint and flooring materials. Recycled and reused components reduce our ecological footprint and create a unique and comfortable work space. Additional plans for the building include Rain Gardens for storm water retention and installation of renewable energy technologies like photo-voltaic cells or micro-wind turbines.
The building has garnered much attention in Carteret County, where it is located in the county’s Crystal Coast Business Park and where several marine science institutions make their home. The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new office was May 17, 2011 and was attended by colleagues from the USGS, NOAA, UNC-CH, NCSU, and the Carteret County Shoreline Protection Office. Our US Congressman Walter Jones made opening remarks, and joined the Carteret County Economic Development Council in applauding Geodynamics’ expansion.
Geodynamics’ Headquarters is located in the Crystal Coast Business Park, located in Morehead City / Newport.
