Basic Info:

  • Office buildings owned by the company often associated with the zombie outbreak. From the outside, they are indistinguishable from other buildings, but characters with the NecroTech Employment skill are able to recognise them.
  • Among the internal descriptions found in NecroTech Buildings:
    The NecroTech logo is set in the wall behind the front desk, and doors open onto powered-down computer rooms and laboratories."
  • If a generator is running inside the building:
    "The NecroTech logo glows gently above the front desk, and doors open onto a number of brightly-lit laboratories and computer rooms."
  • NecroTech offices are tall enough for survivors to commit suicide from. They also provide a vantage point from which binoculars can be used.
  • Necrotech Buildings can be barricaded normally.

The Greenhow Building is a NecroTech facility located in the suburb of Roftwood. Though a faceless corporate structure to the uninitiated, this facility acts as the heart of R&D for NecroTech within the suburb. Staff at this building commonly revive zombies at nearby revive points. This facility is one of two NecroTech facilities found in the suburb.

Roftwood Assault Force


In mid-December 2005 when the massive zombie attack on Roftwood began the Greenhow Building was one of the first buildings in the suburb that fell. In late-December 2005 the human survivors have recaptured the building and held it temporarily, the building changed hands numerous times in that time and was one of the last locations in Roftwood which were recaptured due to the heavy zombie resistance. At the end of December 2005 the Greenhow Building became more frequently visited by the survivors in Roftwood because the RAF decided to open their own revive point in an adjacent block, Turpin Road.

This building was also once the Northern Section of the RAF (Roftwood Assault Force)(Nov 2005 -May 2008) HQ Complex (see Grimshaw Road PD to learn about the Southern Complex).

Members of project NecroWatch rennovated 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 Greenhow Building feel certain that they can crack the mystery surrounding the spread of the virus as well as help monitor aberrant zombie activity within Roftwood.

Barricade Policy

The Greenhow NT is to be caded VSB when the suburb is safe. When powered, this generates new scientists as they join. If under attack, barricades then can be raised to EHB. The entry-point is located at Blunden Row School which remains VSB. Survivors who find the building's barricades below their assigned level are asked to assist in raising them back up in order to help ensure the safety of all the survivors staying inside the building.

NecroNet Reports

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 Greenhow 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).
