Simons Observatory Construction Management

The Simons Observatory is located in the Atacama desert of Northern Chile at an elevation of 17,000 ft. The site is composed of multiple telescopes that will provide scientists an unprecedented glimpse into the nature of fundamental physical processes that have governed the origin and evolution of the universe since the dawn of time itself.

M3 is providing year-round on-site Construction Management services in support of the construction of the site infrastructure, site structures, and telescope installations. In addition to the Construction Management services, M3 is providing design and engineering work associated with the site grounding system. M3 is also providing peer-review of the locally prepared structural aspects of the project, including concrete and structural steel design.
