Construction on new remote operations center begins today in Wilson Hall atrium

Construction work for the new remote operations center begins today. This work, on the atrium level of Wilson Hall, will require the closing of portions of the west stairway. Access from the ground floor, atrium level and second floor of the stairway will be blocked for the duration of the construction activities. Access above the second floor will be maintained.

The new remote operations center will serve as a hub for scientists on Fermilab’s neutrino and muon experiments. They will use the new facility for experiment operations, similar to scientists using the LHC Remote Operations Center on the east side of the atrium for the CMS experiment.
