The Korte Company has begun construction at the Uranium Processing Facility (UPF) Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The $19.5 Million Design-Build project includes the design and construction of a Construction Support Building (CSB) at the facility.
The three-story, 64,000 square foot building includes a centrally located main lobby with access to the second and third floors. Along with the main lobby, the first floor also includes a reception area, a large dining area, file storage and a warehouse area with forklift access.

When complete in the summer of 2017, the facility is expected to receive USGBC LEED Gold Certification.
