2014

  • Secretary's Award of Excellence: N umi Off-axis electron neutrino (νe) Appearance (NOνA) Project at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
    • The NOνA project team successfully constructed the nation’s premier neutrino experiment by upgrading the neutrino beam at Fermilab and constructing a massive 14-kiloton detector in Ash River, Minnesota, and a smaller 300 ton neutrino detector at Fermilab. The $274.0M project will provide deep insight into the fundamental processes involved in the formation of the universe and understanding the differences between matter and antimatter. The project team effectively led a large number of partner institutions—laboratories, universities, and domestic and foreign vendors to fabricate and assemble an immense number of state-of-the-art technical components. The NOνA project team produced a world-leading facility, which will keep the U.S. at the forefront of this important physics frontier.
  • Secretary's Award of Achievement: Energy Sciences Building (ESB) Project by Argonne National Laboratory
    • The ESB project team successfully delivered a new laboratory facility to advance the DOE and ANL mission to create technology that will transform the energy basis of the nation’s economy. Research conducted at ESB will have a lasting impact on how the nation will consume and conserve energy. The $95.96M project provides ANL with a state-of-the-art, high-performance laboratory and office building, including flexible laboratory space that can be reconfigured to accommodate changing research projects over the facility life cycle. In addition to achieving a LEED Gold certification, ESB was also received the American Council of Engineering Companies Engineering in Excellence Award; a Chicago Building Congress Merit Award; and the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute Award for Excellence in Design. The success of the ESB project is credited to the experienced and dedicated project management team, robust project planning, comprehensive risk management, and timely scrutiny of project performance.
  • Secretary's Award of Achievement: Science's Seismic Life-Safety, Modernization, and Replacement of General Purpose Buildings, Phase 2 Project by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
    • The Seismic Phase 2 project greatly improved seismic life safety at LBNL by demolishing or modernizing outdated, seismically deficient structures and replacing them with efficient, modern research space. The $97.0M project impacted 13 buildings in 4 geographical locations, and included construction of the new General Purpose Laboratory (GPL), a major modernization of Building 74, a seismic update to the Hazardous Waste Handling Facility, and demolition of 10 seismically deficient buildings and trailers. LBNL received the U.S. Green Building Council Award for the Green Renovation of Building 74. In addition, Building 74 received LBNL and SC’s first LEED Platinum certification, and the GPL received LEED Gold certification. With the completion of the Seismic Phase II project, LBNL’s GPL will be devoted to flagship centers in material sciences, energy storage research, and key biosciences programs. These achievements would not have been possible without the dedication and professionalism of the Seismic Phase II project team.
  • Federal Project Director of the Year: Pepin Carolan, Federal Project Director at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
    • For demonstrating exceptional leadership and project management acumen as Federal Project Director (FPD) for the $274.0 million Numi O ff-axis electron neutrino (νe) Appearance (NOνA) Project at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The NOνA project is the nation’s premier neutrino experiment, and included the construction of a massive 14-kiloton detector in Ash River, Minnesota and a smaller 300-ton neutrino detector at Fermilab, in addition to upgrading the neutrino beam at Fermilab. As NOνA’s FPD since 2005, Mr. Carolan’s leadership, attention to detail, keen technical understanding, and commitment to communicate were all key factors in overcoming the project’s significant challenges, including the project’s large scale, first-of-a-kind construction, the large number of partners, and other unforeseen project management issues. Mr. Carolan’s dedication to project success and his team’s exceptional performance resulted in the NOνA project’s successful completion.
