Changes to Department of Energy (DOE) codes required Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to reevaluate and retrofit its Fuel Manufacturing Facility (FMF) at the Materials and Fuels Complex. The FMF has reinforced concrete exterior walls and slabs with reinforced concrete masonry interior walls. The structure lies on shallow soil above bedrock and under a berm. In a two-phase project, SGH provided assessment and design services for Battelle Energy Alliance, LLC (BEA), which operates the facility for the Department of Energy.
