A tlanta-based Heery International is providing the project and construction management for the new Cahill Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. Designed by Santa Monica-based Morphosis, the $50 million, 100,000-sf facility will serve as the new home for astronomers, instrument builders, and theorists who currently work in several buildings on the Caltech campus. Consisting of three floors and a basement, the facility will offer office space, laboratories, remote observing rooms, conference rooms, library, auditorium, and classrooms.
