Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility is a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science national laboratory. Scientists worldwide utilize the lab’s unique particle accelerator to probe the most basic building blocks of life to better understand our world. A goal for this project was to transform the existing complex from an environmentally-degraded service yard into a vibrant, sustainable campus through the introduction of the Technology and Engineering Development Facility (TEDF). EwingCole designed the LEED Gold, 188,000 SF TEDF building to create a unified, team-oriented working environment by optimizing and standardizing the process flow of people, information, products, supplies and waste through the facility.
"In all my years with the Department of Energy, I have never seen a project that has so transformed a site and operations as the JLab TEDF project. Congratulations and thanks to EwingCole the Architects for developing and leading us in this solution and to Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility for having the foresight to encourage and embrace this design."
