Pacific Northwest National Lab Designs Energy Sciences Research Building

Published 2-5-2019

Pacific Northwest National Lab is planning to build a $90 million energy sciences research building in Richland, Wash. Designed by Kirksey Architecture, the collaborative facility will provide between 110,000 and 145,000 sf of flexible lab and office space to support fundamental research in chemistry, materials science, and computing. Accommodating advanced instrumentation including next-generation NMR and electron microscopy devices, the project will enable the development of new energy and transportation technologies. The general contractor for the facility is Harvey Cleary Builders. Construction is expected to begin by early 2020 with completion slated for late 2021.
