The Uranium Processing Facility’s design and management team is vacating its headquarters on Union Valley Road in Oak Ridge, as well as an off-site facility in Knoxville, and creating a “walkable campus” involving two facilities in Oak Ridge’s Commerce Park.
Kathryn King, a spokeswoman at Y-12 contractor Consolidated Nuclear Security, provided this statement about the upcoming moves:
“The UPF project offices are currently located in three facilities: one in Knoxville and two in Oak Ridge, including the 90 Union Valley Road office. We are in the process of creating a walkable campus in two facilities in Commerce Park for increased safety and greater cost efficiency. The Commerce Park facilities can house as many as 850-900 people.”
The UPF team is either in the process of or already has vacated the Union Valley facility, and King confirmed that the new campus will include the project’s existing facility at 1099 Commerce Park and another, nearby property.
