JE Dunn completed two new ground-up highly secure buildings totaling 148,000 SF for the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and Idaho State Board of Education: the Cybercore Integration Center and the Collaborative Computing Center (C3). INL is the nation’s leading center for nuclear energy research and development and is one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s national laboratories.
The Cybercore Integration Center is an 80,979 SF, 2-story building that houses a data center and hosts an advanced electronics lab that is used for cybersecurity and infrastructure security research for industry, government and academia to work together to systematically engineer cyber and physical security innovations to protect the nation’s most critical infrastructure, like the power grid.
The Collaborative Computing Center is a 66,520 SF, 2-story modern building that houses a “supercomputer” providing research and collaborative capabilities to benefit the lab, universities and other institutions throughout the state. The facility is instrumental in the exploration of computer modeling and simulation for nuclear materials, advance nuclear concepts and conduct an array of scientific research. C3 is designed to be an 8MW High Performance Computing (HPC) Data Center with 2MW of redundancy. Day 1 installation of 4MW capacity with 2MW of redundancy.
