Proposed UC Sponsored Construction Projects
Computational Research and Theory (CRT) Facility
The Computational Research and Theory (CRT) Facility will be on the forefront of high-performance supercomputing research and will be DOE’s most efficient facility of its kind. Designed to take advantage of the cool Berkeley climate, the CRT is anticipated to set a new standard in energy efficiency for high-performance computing.
Key research areas expected to benefit from the CRT Facility would include global climate change research, fusion energy research, biological and environmental research, basic energy science, and astrophysics.
The location of the new facility will be on the hillside of Chu road near the Blackberry Gate entrance to Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Currently, the main construction activities are earthwork and foundation work. These activities include drilling, installation of tie backs and soil nails, lagging and shotcrete work. Foundation work will continue through the Summer of 2013. Project completion is scheduled for early 2015.
