CHEYENNE, Wyo. — The National Center for Atmospheric Research has chosen a construction management and general contracting firm for a facility west of Cheyenne that will contain one of the world's fastest supercomputers.
When completed, the $66 million facility will be used for modeling the climate and other tasks.
Officials with Boulder, Colo.-based NCAR announced in a release Monday that Centennial, Colo.-based Saunders Construction, Inc., will provide pre-construction and potentially construction services for the project.
NCAR said the firm was selected after a competitive process but offered no details of the process. NCAR officials did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
Construction is expected to begin next year.
