The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms.
The Lodder Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Wyke Hills. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Survivors who happen to wander outside will recognize the building as a derelict yellow-stone building with stern gargoyles along its guttering. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. This facility is one of four NecroTech facilities found in the suburb.
As the building is a mere three blocks away from Buckley Mall, it is placed as the second closest NT facility to the mall, with only the Tebbett Building in Buttonville being closer. It should be noted that a NecroNet scan from the Lodder Building is only partial due to its proximity to Malton's southern border. However, it is the only NecroTech building in Wyke Hills that will provide complete coverage of Buckley Mall's "zombie status" at any given time.
The Lodder Building can usually be accessed from Screech Lane PD or St. Emelia's Church. It may also be possible to use Free Running in order to travel from Haim Walk Fire Station through Cheesman Bank to this building.
Members of project NecroWatch renovated the facility in recent months, as they installed sensor eyes for A.L.I.C.E. throughout the building and uploaded NecroNet 2.0 into the facility's system terminals.
NecroTech staff continue to follow directive 42-A, issued by the head office on January 19th 2006, with the activation and manufacture of MK-II revivification syringes. While the cost in time and effort are currently high the certainty provided by being able to manufacture a constant stream of syringes has mitigated early concerns.
The activation of NecroNet with all NecroTech buildings has also allowed scientists to apply the DNA tracking research they have gathered to date. The field research staff stationed at the Lodder Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Wyke Hills.
Zombie tracking reports are a free service provided by the NecroTech corporation to all its staff and local survivors in order to help facilitate quicker response times when managing zombie threats and to build a greater awareness of zombie migration patterns within the 9x9 block region around the Lodder Building. As a cautious reminder, only those zombies tagged with the DNA Extractor will appear on these scans, so actual numbers may vary when dealing with older zombies (i.e. Brain Rot).
