Award: Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Second Target Station
Value: $1.8 billion to $3 billion
Location: Oak Ridge, Tennessee
Client: Department of Energy

The Department of Energy’s Office of Science tapped Greeley, Colorado-based Hensel Phelps as the construction management/general contractor for Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s second target station project, according to a June 26 news release. The project will cost between $1.8 billion and $3 billion, per a 2023 DOE Office of Science fact sheet.

The project will extend and complement the neutron capabilities of the existing first target station to enable breakthroughs across the physical and biological sciences.

Overall, the builder expects more than 30 trade subcontractors to contribute, with more than 350 tradespeople expected during the peak of construction over the next eight years, according to the release.

The facility will be designed to meet the DOE High Performance Sustainable Building Guiding Principles, which include:

  • Employing integrated design principles.
  • Optimizing energy performance.
  • Protecting and conserving water.
  • Enhancing the indoor environment.
  • Reducing the environmental impact of materials.
  • Assessing and considering building resilience.

The overall CM/GC contract will include both the preconstruction and construction phases, per the news release. Hensel Phelps is currently in the preconstruction phase, which includes design reviews, market analysis, value engineering and developing a master project schedule.

The project comes during a year where Hensel Phelps saw a broad leadership change — on Jan. 8, the company named Brad Jeanneret as its new president and COO.
