Millennium Science Complex Construction 012

Due to the scientific and chemistry-related nature of the Millennium Science Complex, the building has been built to accommodate quantities of chemicals and compounds that may be dangerous or hazardous in the event of an accident or catastrophe. To cut down on potential damage to the building, the storage area for these has been placed on an exterior wall in the basement, with three large blast walls which will vent an explosion outward away from the building rather than inward or upward.
