The Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) envisions the Advanced Manufacturing Collaborative (AMC) as a cornerstone upon which the future of SRNL will be shaped. This vision requires both physical and intangible attributes which engage the full capabilities of government, academia and industry.
Heery, as part of the Aiken Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AAMP), LLC, is providing full-service architecture, engineering, and interior design for Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS). The new, 70,000 SF building will include chemistry labs, engineering fabrication labs, high bay and industrial work space, and staff offices and will be located adjacent to the University of South Carolina Aiken campus.
In the physical realm, the AMC facility must exude a tangible sense of purpose and technical excellence as one enters the building. The environment should stimulate the mind and the spirit to be a part of something larger than self. Heery foresees an open concept which maximizes use of natural light and creates a showpiece where visitors and stakeholders can observe without actually entering the workspace.
The building will include offices, reception, laboratories and training facilities, conference areas, high bay interactive spaces all while being designed to meet LEED standards.
