Hornwright Industrial headquarters is a location in the city of Charleston in Appalachia in 2102. It is the corporate headquarters of the pre-War company Hornwright Industrial.


Located in downtown Charleston, this skyscraper was the heart of the Hornwright Industrial Mining Company.


The skyscraper is divided into seven distinct floors, terminating in the executive suite on top. The entrance hall constitutes the ground level (1) and contains the reception with the terminal in the mezzanine, together with a Nuka-Cola machine in the southern room and pools of radioactive water. On the opposite end, up the stairs, are the company archives, while in the southeastern corner is the stairwell linking most levels together.

Floors 2 through 5 overlook a single central chamber. The second floor is the IT department with Jeffery Vaccarro's terminal and the Senior executive exam answer key in his desk. The adjacent room contains a chemistry station. The third contains the human resources department on the southern face together with the senior executive exam.

The fourth floor contains the conference room and Penelope Hornwright's office, the latter of which has a tinker's workbench. The terminal on her desk contains a message to Yvette that contains the password for the automated hiring system in the hiring department.

The fifth contains an exist to the external balcony - now the adjacent residential building's top floor, which contains ruined wastelander dwellings - and blocked offices, accessible through the ruined technical passage on the western face of the building. The safe requires R. Vargas' key, which is located on the bottom right shelf of his desk.

The top floor can be accessed through the lobby elevator after acquiring the senior executive keycard during The Motherlode. The top floor contains the main lobby, with the executive office of Daniel Hornwright on the northern end and the development lab on the opposite end. The executive offices contain another chemistry station. Interact with the external connection system to meet the Motherlode autonomous mining robot. The elevator to the basement can be enabled by advancing the Motherlode quest and serves as the meeting point of the robot. At this level there is another elevator which accesses the sub-basement level, where a weapons workbench can be found.
