GCRC-SOP has two research buildings, each of them occupying over 1000 square meters in Pusan national University. The construction of Research building 1 was finished in 2002 with the total area of 2686 square meters. The building is the GCRC-SOP headquarters including offices for director, administration, professor, and visiting scholars, laboratories, and a room for lectures and seminars. The building has a towing tank of length 100m, width 8m, and depth 3.5m with a high speed towing carriage. This towing tank is the largest among those in universities of Korea.

Research building 2 was built in front of research building 1 in 2007. The building includes visitors office and laboratories for various tests such as sloshing test, wet and dry drop tests, fatigue failure test, and ecological paint test in the total area of 1058 square meters.

A GCRC-SOP expansion schedule for the extension of research building 1 and construction of a new building is progressing as planned. First the construction of a new building will be carried out on the top of research building 1. The new building will include a cavitation tunnel and its control and preparation rooms, rooms for conference and seminar, and professors offices.

GCRC-SOP owns over 100 facilities and equipments including a large towing tank (100m length * 8m width * 3.5m depth, 7m/s towing carriage speed), a high speed circular water channel for friction resistance test, a One-stop evaluation equipment for LNG cargo, a test facility for the development of eco-friendly paint, wave makers, a 6-DOF sloshing simulator machine.
