2012

  • Secretary's Award of Excellence: Building 51 and Bevatron Demolition Project at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • The Bevatron Demolition Project successfully accomplished DOE’s first-ever deactivation and demolition (D&D) of a large-scale particle accelerator. The Bevatron facility was shut down in 1993 after operating 39 years in support of high-energy and heavy-ion physics research, discovering the anti-proton, and contributing to four Nobel Prizes. The project team safely and effectively accomplished D&D and disposal of the Bevatron accelerator and its supporting structures—approximately 30,000 tons of radiological activated material. Careful planning, management, and attention to lessons learned and risks allowed the project team to deliver the project scope on schedule and under budget. In addition, the team created the largest building site at LBNL for future use. The project team is to be commended for their excellent performance.
  • Secretary's Award of Achievement: Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Detector Project by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • The Daya Bay project team successfully delivered an antineutrino detection system to better understand the behaviors of neutrinos. The project, located at a nuclear reactor complex in Daya Bay, China, overcame management challenges associated with working in a multicultural collaboration at a foreign location to successfully deliver the U.S. contributions. The $35.5 million project provided approximately half of the experimental equipment needed by the international collaboration. After only two months of initial operation, the experiment was able to publish the first precision measurement of the neutrino mixing parameter. The project’s discovery was selected by Science Magazine as a “Top 10 Breakthrough of 2012”. This achievement would not have been possible without the keen insight, dedication, and professionalism of the United States Daya Bay project team.
  • Federal Project Director of the Year: Hannibal Joma, Federal Project Director at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
    • For demonstrating exceptional leadership and project management acumen as Federal Project Director (FPD) for the $60 million Linac Coherent Light Source Ultrafast Science Instruments (LUSI) Project at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The LUSI Project provides three state-of-the-art ultrafast hard X-ray instruments and experimental end-stations. As LUSI’s FPD since 2007, Hannibal led the integrated project team in proactively removing barriers, resolving unanticipated problems, and executing innovative solutions resulting in successful project delivery – every instrument exceeded its threshold key performance parameters. Working closely with the LUSI user community, overcoming project funding issues, and executing a phased commissioning plan enabled the start of early science. Hannibal and his team’s exceptional performance resulted in the delivery of the LUSI Project ahead of schedule and under budget.
