Value Delivered

The Material Fuels Complex, a new construction project, created much needed infrastructure to help Idaho National Laboratory (INL) receive, prepare, test, and store irradiated materials. Our team utilized our Idaho Falls fabrication facility and on-site project management to help ensure the quality of our duct and piping installation, qualifying us for further site stabilization agreement work at the facility.

Client Objectives

In addition to their desire to create infrastructure for handling irradiated materials, the lab wanted to extend the life of its current fleet of reactors, allowing them to develop and deploy materials for advanced reactors.


We provided fabrication and installation of:

  • Galvanized and stainless-steel ductwork
  • Exhaust stack
  • HVAC equipment
  • Ventilation embeds
  • Eight fume hoods
  • Three gloveboxes
  • HEPA filtration

In addition, our team oversaw the work of several subcontractors and consultants, including insulation, testing and balancing, controls, BIM, and seismic design and materials.

Client Background

Idaho National Laboratory is a national center for the research, development, and qualification of nuclear materials.
