Kavli Contruction Phase II Begins

By Emily Ball

Construction on the Kavli facility has reached a new phase.

Parking Lots

The Kavli parking lot is fully open and functional for all staff and visitors to use.

As work on the Kavli facility continues, construction activities will result in the temporary partial closure of the Visitor’s parking lot near the Main Gate, where the contractor’s trailer is currently located, to accommodate construction equipment.

The main asphalt walkway between the Visitor’s parking lot and the main campus area will be closed until the end of the construction project. A new temporary pathway to the new parking lot has been installed. Signs will be posted to assist staff and visitors as they adjust to the new route.

Excavation at Kavli Site

The week of December 13, contractors will begin more active work in Phase II of Kavli Construction: the preparation of the Kavli building site. Rough grading and excavation will carry on into the following several weeks. Construction will get noisier and there will be a significant increase in construction traffic on site.

SLAC staff cooperation is greatly appreciated during Kavli construction. For questions or more information, please contact Gina Coony (650-724-3606 or or Jerry Jobe (x4245 or
