FESTIVAL OF THE CRANES — Construction cranes, including a 190-foot giant, tower over the MESA construction site on the east side of Tech Area 1. The cranes, brought in by general contractor Hensel-Phelps for work on the MESA MicroLab facility, are the most visible sign yet that the MESA project is moving full speed ahead. The multibuilding MESA complex, scheduled to be completed in 2007 with a price tag of more than $450 million, is the largest building project in Sandia’s history.
