Brookhaven Lab is noted for the design, construction and operation of large-scale, cutting-edge research facilities that support thousands of scientists worldwide. The National Synchrotron Light Source is a new state-of-the-art, medium-energy electron storage ring (3 billion electron-volts) designed to deliver world-leading intensity and brightness, and will produce x-rays more than 10,000 times brighter than the current NSLS. The superlative character and combination of capabilities will have broad impact on a wide range of disciplines and scientific initiatives.
GLS was chosen by both Brookhaven National Labs and Torcon Construction to play a key role in the building of the Light Source Building. Our services included site preparation, design build, 3D CAD support, Project Management, Installation, Commissioning and Post Construction Maintenance Services for the 3 plus year Project. Our experience working with Brookhaven Labs, over the past 25 years, combined with our expertise of Electrical, Network and Security Services greatly assisted the project to achieve its overall objectives and goals.As a result of the execution of this project, Torcon was named ENR Contractor of the year and GLS was proud to be a part of the team.
