CHESS celebrates construction milestone with Wilson West open house

On Wednesday, November 15, CHESS had an open house for members of the Cornell community in the new Wilson West expansion project. The project recently received its temporary certificate of occupancy, which marks a milestone in the construction project.

Wilson West houses a new large experimental hall to accommodate the upcoming High Magnetic Field X-ray Beamline. Guests were invited to tour the new building, including future beamline caves, server rooms, electronics and vacuum labs, sample preparation rooms, and an ADA-accessible chemistry room.

The new milestone marks a point in the project when efforts will begin to move from building construction to installing highly specialized experimental equipment.
