Fermilab OTE Building

Fermilab OTE BuildingFermi 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.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThe Tevatron was at the leading edge of scientific discoveries including finding nature’s heaviest elementary particle: the top quark.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThe 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.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThis 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.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThe 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.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThe 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.
Fermilab OTE BuildingThe combined buildings provide a state-of-the-art facility for research, development and industrialization of advanced particle accelerator technology.
