Lawrence Livermore Begins Supercomputing Hub Construction; Bill Goldstein Comments

LLNLsupercomputingfacilityLawrence Livermore National Laboratory held a ground-breaking ceremony Thursday to mark the start of construction of a $9.9 million facility for unclassified high-performance computing activities.

The center is being built on the lab’s east side and will have computer room space to facilitate the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration‘s stockpile stewardship initiative, LLNL said Thursday.

“Modernizing the lab’s computing infrastructure will enable us to better exploit next-generation supercomputers for NNSA by tapping the talents of top academic and private sector partners,” said LLNL Director Bill Goldstein.

M&W Architects and Engineers designed the building and WE Lyons serves as construction contractor.

LLNL says the building will consist of a 6,000-square-foot machine floor structure that is flanked by support space.

The dual-level center is also designed to have energy efficiency systems and to allow for up to 7.5 megawatts of computational capacity.
