Argonne Energy Facility Ground Breakingon June 4, 2011 at 4:09 pm
With the recent reports on the jobs market continuing to look fairly grim, we need all the investment in new jobs we can get, and when that investment is also good for our greener future, then all the better.
Which is why the ground breaking on the new Energy Sciences Building is such a welcome site for those looking for a boost in employment, as the facility will be responsible for 2,000 new construction, and service jobs, along with the employment of 200 researchers at the facility.
The building itself will be as energy conscious as they come, utilizing things like exhaust heat recovery, local & recycled building materials, and advanced lighting systems, along with a daylighting design.
This new Argonne facility will hopefully lead not only to more advanced battery design patents to keep America competitive in the world, but also nearer term employment opportunities for those looking to dig their way out of this long recession.
