Have you been wondering about the fence surrounding the area where the Security Office trailers used to be? Soon, two new modular buildings will be located there to help provide space for the LCLS project. These units must conform to SLAC’s strict building code which requires them to meet very high seismic standards; that is why they have such extensive concrete foundations.

The new modulars are due to arrive in mid-August and be ready to occupy by mid-September. The modulars will house the BABAR Users who, in cooperation with the needs of the lab, are vacating their offices in the Physics and Engineering Building (Bldg. 280) so LCLS project personnel can be co-located.

The two new modulars are 36’ x 60’ and 24’ x 60’. They occupy the space that used to be covered by two Security trailers, two storage containers and government vehicle parking.

Seven additional parking spaces have been added just past the Sector 30 gate (take the first right after the gate and drive along the north side of the Klystron Gallery a few yards and you will see new spaces on the right, next to the Salvage Yard fence).
