Exelon Generation hosted a ribbon cutting in celebration of a completed multimillion-dollar expansion of the nuclear plant’s Professional Learning Center.
The new addition added more than 36,000 square feet to the existing structure and will allow the station to retire older, temporary buildings that require more frequent maintenance. It will also provide a modern and professional learning environment for the supplemental workers who support the plant, especially during annual refuel outages.
For this $7 million construction project, Exelon Generation partnered with Burling Builders, Inc., an African American-owned, Chicago-based firm that has successfully completed similar facilities in Illinois. Burling subcontracted with multiple Quad Cities-based companies for portions of this work throughout the project.
