The upgrade to Jefferson Lab’s Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility was part of a $338 million construction project. The facility is a center for research on hadronic matter, in which scientists probe the interior of the nucleus to study its properties. The facility upgrades provided research capabilities from 6 GeV to 12GeV.
The construction project encompassed renovations to the 67,000-square-foot Applied Research Center and extended the main section of the facility, bringing the total square footage to 140,000.
Precision’s scope of work included the cost analysis of the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems for this highly complex project.
