New Science & Technology Park at ORNL

Groundbreaking ceremonies in August for the first building to be constructed at the new Oak Ridge Science and Technology Park symbolize the Laboratory's latest effort to partner with private companies. Located on 40 acres adjacent to the main ORNL campus, the S&T park will be the first private business park to be built within the boundaries of a Department of Energy national laboratory.

The park's first facility will house the National Security Engineering Center of Professional Project Services Inc., or Pro2Serve. The $14 million headquarters will include space for privately employed scientists and engineers with expertise in quality assurance, national security, and environmental, safety and health issues. Company executives say Pro2Serve plans to employ 300 people at the new facility, slated for completion in November 2009.

Some $3 million was invested in site preparation and installation of energy, water and communication services. Of this investment in the park's infrastructure, $1.8 million came from federal and state grants.
