The NWSC will enable advanced scientific discovery for the next several decades. The adaptive design and construction enables the facility to expand in accordance to the evolving nature of supercomputing technology. The facility includes 16,000-square-feet of Administration space, a 3,600-square-foot Network Operations Center, 2,300-square-feet of Mass Media Storage as well as a 100,000-square-foot Central Utility Plant.
The NWSC’s design takes full advantage of Cheyenne’s elevation and cool, dry climate by employing ambient air to cool the facility nearly year round. This significantly reduces the facility’s energy use. The facility is 90 percent more energy efficient than typical supercomputing centers and is LEED Gold Certified. In addition, over 70 percent of the construction materials were reused on-site or recycled.
