The National Nuclear Security Administration Ion Beam Laboratory Project
The Ion Beam Laboratory project team is recognized for delivering this state-of-the-art facility six months ahead of schedule and nearly $6 million dollars under budget. This was accomplished while achieving LEED Gold certification. Through the exceptionally close working relationships between all project stakeholders, the project overcame numerous challenges to deliver a facility that is unlike any other laboratory in the Department of Energy or NNSA complex. Critical to this project was a complex series of sensitive equipment moves. One specific move involved the relocation of a 100,000 pound, 40 foot long accelerator with an internal glass tube sensitive to pressure, temperature, and sudden movements. The combined project team planned and executed this and many other moves flawlessly and without incident. The day-to-day cooperation between all stakeholders was superb and a true model as to how projects across the Department should be executed.
