Text description provided by the architects. Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory decommissioned the Tevatron particle collider, which had been the largest in the world until the European based Large Hadron Collider was constructed.

The Tevatron was at the leading edge of scientific discoveries including finding nature's heaviest elementary particle: the top quark.

The new $18 milion Office, Technical, and Education building (OTE) merges with the heart of the decommissioned Tevatron, the Collider Detector Facility (CDF), to form the epicenter of the Illinois Accelerator Research Center.

First & Second Floor Plans

This symbolic relationship between new and old is achieved by bridging the office component from a main base, and embracing the existing building along the south. The new structure is 48,000 square feet on three floors and includes; offices, conference rooms, light technical laboratories, two story lunch room overlooking the campus, and a lecture hall to hold domestic and international seminars and conferences.

The OTE incorporates a raised access floor system, underfloor air distribution, and a demountable partition system to support a diverse array of rotating tenants and provides a wide degree of flexible space. The combined buildings provide a state-of-the-art facility for research, development and industrialization of advanced particle accelerator technology. The building is on track to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
