The Wyoming Supercomputing Center has now reached the design phase according to the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), and the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). The new facility will house the world’s fastest supercomputers on a mission to better understand weather, climate and other Earth and atmospheric processes.
The completion of the initial design phase by Denver-based H+L Architecture will now be reviewed by both NCAR and the NAtional Science Foundation (NCAR’s sponsor). The plan includes energy efficient construction and certification by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System. Construction on the project is scheduled to begin in spring 2010, with completion in 2011.
