New Building For Pacific Northwest National Lab Campus

RICHLAND — The federal government’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will build a new $90 million energy sciences research building on its Richland campus. A contract to design and construct the building has been awarded to a Houston-based team of Harvey Cleary Builders and Kirksey Architecture. The Tri-City Herald says the facility will cover 110,000 to 145,000 square feet. Lab officials say research conducted in the new building may lead to reduced vehicle emissions, more efficient fertilizer production, and the ability to turn waste into fuels and products. The building is expected to have labs and workstations for about 175 PNNL and visiting scientists, engineers and research support staff. The lab has several thousand workers in Richland.
