All Fermilab badged employees can now access the common areas, conference rooms and hallways of the new Integrated Engineering Research Center, or IERC. The IERC will centralize engineers and technicians near Wilson Hall to increase collaboration.
There will be workspaces on the ground floor dedicated to scientific equipment and only people who have designated access to these rooms can enter the spaces. These scientific spaces will include clean room space, a testing facility for LBNF/DUNE on the far north end, various project labs for detector R&D and space for dilution refrigerators.
In May, contractors will repair glass panes that were damaged during construction. Badged employees will still have access to the building with work zones being locally restricted near the repair site.
The space looks empty now, but it will come alive with activity as people and furniture move in over the next few months.
