Sandia National Laboratories' MESA project completed 3 years early, under budget
The largest construction project in Sandia National Laboratories' history is finished.
The Microsystems and Engineering Sciences Applications project, called MESA, when it was introduced in 1999 was supposed to cost $516 million and be completed in 2011.
Overall, the three-building, 400,000-square-foot MESA complex includes factories, science and research labs and a design facility — all focused on the microscopic sciences of microtechnology and nanotechnology.
