See the construction of the new building for the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre in Lugano.

The construction project started in January, 2010 with the demolition of an old building (previous bus terminal) and the excavation work. The construction of the building shell started in August 2010 and finished on February 3, 2011 with a "roofing ceremony".

The new data center offers 8'000 m2 for technical installation (2'000 m2 for the supercomputers) and 3'000 m2 for offices. The construction will continue in the next months with the interior work and the completion of the building front.

The new centre will be operative at the beginning of 2012.
