High-Performance Computing Research Center (Completed 2011)
This building will house Princeton's high-performance computing research systems on the Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro about three miles from the main campus. It will serve as home of TIGRESS -- the Terascale Infrastructure for Groundbreaking Research in Engineering and Science Center.
TIGRESS is a collaborative effort that brings together funding, support, and participation from many departments and organizations across the University. The center is designed to create a well balanced set of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources meeting the broad computational requirements of Princeton's research community. The facility also will support a much smaller component of the University's administrative computing capacity.
The two-story building will have approximately 40,000 square feet and will comprise three functional components: a computing area; an electrical and mechanical support area; and a small office/support area.
- Building design is intended to meet LEED Silver standards
- Building is designed to be 33% more efficient than the computing center at 87 Prospect
- Energy efficient HVAC system including heat-recovery system
