Exascale Computing Facility Modernization (ECFM) Site Preparation

This ECFM Site Preparation project was the first in a series of several projects to modify and upgrade the civil, structural, architectural, mechanical, and electrical systems of B453 and the adjacent 3.5 acres of previously developed site. These modifications and upgrades allowed for continued use of B453 to support the increasing demands of the next generation of high-performance computers and also provided enhanced power and cooling for the current and future ATS computers.

This initial project prepared the construction site for an efficient start of the main ECFM construction project. The work included relocating utilities that supported enduring functions, such as power to adjacent buildings and sanitary sewer for the existing cooling tower blowdown. This relocation allowed for follow-on main ECFM construction work with fewer interruptions to ongoing operations. New site utilities were installed with provisions for follow-on work. A new modular building, B3777, was provided and installed, including area site preparation. Existing B3577, which was located in the footprint of the follow-on main ECFM construction work, was removed and the operations and personnel were relocated into the new B3777.
