Special Notice
Added: Dec 14, 2012 3:53 pm

This notice is issued for information and planning purposes only. This announcement is not a Request for Proposal (RFP) and does not commit the Government to solicit or award a contract now or in the future. No Solicitation is available at this time.

The purpose of this notice is to invite interested parties to attend an Industry Day concerning the requirement described below.


NIST requires the construction of the B1R Phase II in order to renovate Building 1, Wing 3 to reinstate it as a state-of-the-art research facility for the performance of highly sophisticated research. The proposed B1R Phase II is a necessity for NIST's continued long-term support of United States (US) industrial competitiveness in the world market.

The B1R Phase II consists of an interior upgrade and an expansion of Wing 3. The primary objective is constructing Level 3 (L3) capable lab space that will be flexible enough to serve as a swing space throughout the next phases of construction throughout Building 1. There will also be enclosed offices, open offices, interaction spaces and service galleys.

The B1R Phase II will allow the laboratory to combine the features of close temperature control, vibration isolation, air cleanliness and demanding power quality into a facility of crucial national importance. The B1R Phase II will consist of general purpose instrument laboratories. Temperature control will be achieved down to +/- 0.5 degree C in some areas, humidity control to +/- 5% and air filtration to class 10,000.

The B1R Phase II area is approximately 32,000 square feet. Environmental and space requirements for the building are based on extensive programmatic studies of NIST's most technically demanding scientific programs, many of which directly or indirectly support US competitiveness. The building environmental requirements for programs slated for the B1R Phase II can be economically met with renovated laboratory space; therefore, the B1R Phase II is a necessity for NIST's continued long-term support of US industrial competitiveness in the world market.
