TEDF Construction

The Technology & Engineering Development Facility or TEDF is one of the new facilities being constructed at Jefferson Lab is support of the national science agenda.

Two major construction projects are underway at Jefferson Lab - the 12 GeV Upgrade and the Technology & Engineering Development Facility (TEDF).

Under the $310 million 12 GeV project, the lab is upgrading facilities in the existing three experimental halls and constructing a fourth experiment hall, Hall D. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2015 and will provide researchers with state-of-the art facilities to advance science in support of national goals.

The $72 million TEDF project will renovate the existing Test Lab, remove some inadequate and/or obsolete work space and construct a new building that will add 100,000 square feet of work space for critical technical support functions. The entire project is due to be completed in 2014.

Additionally, the lab is seeking to replace or upgrade a variety of utility systems, such as electrical distribution systems, under its proposed Utility Infrastructure Modernization Project (UIM).

Since fiscal year 2000, Jefferson Lab has invested more than $21 million in general plant projects to modernize lab facilities, including $10 million in ARRA funding in fiscal year 2009. An additional $40.5 million is planned for investment through fiscal year 2020 to complete 28 projects that will address facility infrastructure needs, while contributing to a modernized and mission-ready facility.
