New 'front door' for Idaho lab
02 September 2011
Work is to begin on a new $50 million research and education facility at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). The new facility is part of a program of infrastructure upgrades at the US nuclear energy research and development centre launched in 2005 after decades in which no significant new research facilities were built at the site. Work is to begin on the new facility - which will be leased to INL manager Battelle Energy Alliance - in spring 2012 with completion planned for summer 2013. INL deputy laboratory director Dave Hill said the newest facility would enhance INL's interactions with industry, academia and the community and serve as the "front door" for INL.
