One step closer to engaging a construction firm for Far Site

The LBNF project moved one step closer last week to releasing a formal Request for Proposal (RFP) to solicit a Construction Manager and General Contractor for the construction of the Far Site conventional facilities. The RFP received conditional approval from the DOE Independent Review Board and has been forwarded to Office of Science for final review and approval.

The contract is estimated to be between $250 and $350 million dollars in value — one of the largest construction contracts to be executed in the State of South Dakota.
