Smee + Busby Architects and McCarty Holsaple McCarty, in association with Hilferty and Associates, and Hedstrom Design, has been awarded a subcontract by URS | CH2M Oak Ridge LLC (UCOR) as the Professional Site Design Team and Museum Professional for the K-25 History Center, Equipment Building, and Viewing Tower.

 The K-25 building, built in 1943, was a key facility in the Manhattan Project.  As the world’s largest building under one roof, K-25 covered over 2,000,000 square feet while producing the enriched uranium that helped end World War II.  The facility is located at East Tennessee Technology Park, the former Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant.  UCOR is cleaning up the site for the United States Department of Energy (DOE) as it is being transformed into a private sector industrial park.  Demolition of the K-25 building was completed on December 19, 2013.

 In 2012 the DOE signed a Memorandum of Agreement for K-25 Site preservation with a vision to complete historic preservation activities within 5 to 7 years.  This project will expand the story of the Manhattan Project that is told through the Hanford Museum (exhibits designed by Hilferty and Associates in Hanford, WA) and the Bradbury Science Museum (located in Los Alamos, NM).

 The museum subcontract awarded consists of a new K-25 Equipment Building and Viewing Tower to be located adjacent to the existing K-25 footprint and a History Center to be located within the adjacent existing fire station.  Wayside exhibits surrounding the existing footprint will provide visitors with real life stories about the people and science of K-25.

 The main concept of the project is to immerse the visitors in the story of K-25 – commemorating the international importance and history-changing impact of the Manhattan Project and K-25′s role.  The project will inform visitors on why K-25 was built, how K-25 worked, and who made it possible.

Conceptual design for the project will begin in April 2014 and the completion date for the construction of the project is 2017.
