Stanford LCLS Tunnel

Menlo Park, CA - October 2006

Project Description

2,000 feet of underground tunnel and 230 feet of excavated cavern were built to house the world’s first x-ray ‘hard’ laser, the Linac Coherent Light Source, at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. Operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy, this $250 million project involved a fiber reinforced shotcrete wall. The wall was specified with FORTA-FERRO® and ceiling linings were produced using Quikrete-brand Shotcrete MS mix with pre-dry-blended macro synthetic fibers. The FORTA-FERRO® portion of the project showed no difficulty in placement and finishing and allowed for a stronger and more durable tunnel walls.
