Sandia is a multi-program laboratory operated by Sandia Corporation, a Lockheed Martin company, for the U.S. Department of Energy's Nuclear Security Administration.
The Weapons Integration Facility is the latest addition to the MESA Complex of Sandia National Laboratory. The complex, totaling 400,000 square feet, combines high-performance computing simulations, scientific research, and production capabilities in electronics and optics at micro and nano levels to make it a world leader in a new type of simulation-led engineering that will ultimately improve the quality of consumer goods.

The project is a great success and the interior design is an important part of that success. The interior plan not only provides laboratories with the best possible work and research environments, it accommodates formal and informal interaction of staff and visitors in a positive environment of light, color, and space. - R.M.
