Millennium Science Complex Construction 010

This is an exterior view of the "quiet labs" area of the Millennium Science Complex, as seen from the basement. The more than 20 individual research spaces are separated from each other and the rest of the building's structure by being situated on their own individual concrete pads which lie on the bedrock beneath. This isolation aids in freeing the spaces of vibration and sound from other parts of the building, allowing for greater effectiveness of research using sensitive equipment.
