3400 S&T Collab Facility Design/Build

3400 Horn Rapids Road Richland, WA 99354

The 24,000-square-foot Collaboration Center will cost approximately $9.8 million to design, construct and furnish. It will be located at the intersection of Horn Rapids Road and Innovation Boulevard on the north end of the PNNL campus, adjacent to PNNL's Physical Sciences Facility. Construction will start later this year and be complete in fall 2017.

The center will allow PNNL to host larger and more frequent scientific meetings, workshops, training and science-focused events.

The center will enhance collaboration within PNNL as well as between scientists and engineers at the national laboratory, research universities and other scientific research organizations. At PNNL, they address some of the nation's most challenging problems in energy, the environment and national security. But they can't do this alone. Partnership and collaboration with other top research institutions is essential to increase the rate and impact of scientific discovery.

The Collaboration Center also will act as a 'gathering place' that will encourage casual collaboration and connection among PNNL staff, bringing them together in a state-of-the-art facility.

The new center will offer both formal and informal meeting spaces including breakout areas and casual, small seating areas, along with accommodations for large-scale events for up to 450 people in a single session. The center will also serve as the first-stop for laboratory visitors and badging. Food services will include an onsite café for staff and visitors as well as accommodations for catering services to support larger events.
