Project Description
The project consists of an approximately 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art building designed to provide a secure and efficient operating environment for the Petascale system, supporting cyber-infrastructure and associated support and research personnel. The Petascale facility will become home for the worlds fastest supercomputer at 10 PetaFLOPs (or a thousand trillion floating point operations per second). This machine will have the computing power of the current top 500 supercomputers in the world. The building has been designed according to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Building Standards and Design Guidelines and will be a hardened building and site designed to withstand an F3 (165 mph) level tornado. The site location was chosen due to its close proximity to the existing Abbott Power Plant and the Oak Street Chiller Plant. This adjacency allows for economical utility distribution, as well as reliable and redundant power and cooling sources for the facility. The Petascale facility is being designed to a LEED Silver level.

Phase 2 shall consist of General Work; Plumbing Work; Heating and A/C; Ventilation Work; Electrical Work; Sprinkler Work; Temperature Control Work; Drywall Work; Masonry Work and Utilities Site Work.

This project includes a Project Labor Agreement that will be executed between the lowest responsible/responsive bidder and the East Central Illinois Building and Construction Trades Council. A copy of the Project Labor Agreement is included in the Project Bid Documents, General Project Requirements. The Project will be managed using the owners' web-based Construction Management System PRZM.
