Construction phase of the new Center for Fundamental Physics

Drilling work started on the campus of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz

The provided funding by the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz [JGU] allows to establish the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter” [PRISMA+]. Currently a new electron accelerator on the Gutenberg Campus will be constructed. The MESA accelerator and the key experiments will extend across several stories below ground including a new experimental hall provided by the new research building “Center for Fundamental Physics”. For the hall extension of the new MESA underground particle accelerator the drilling work has now begun. They are vibration-optimised and low-vibration to prevent damage to the sensitive experimental facilities of the Mainz Institute of Nuclear Physics.

The general plannning team [Poganiuch + Dang Architekten/Construction Management | Krebs + Kiefer / Structural Design | PGMM /Technical building equipment HLSK, MSR, laboratory planning| Müller & Bleher /Technical building equipment ELT, conveyor technology | TDB Landscape Architecture] under the direction of DGI Bauwerk has to meet the very complex structural and technical requirements ensuring a consistent overall concept and an efficient construction work during ongoing university activities.
