In this video, discover how Arup’s engineering team is participating in the collaborative design process for the expansion of the Sanford Underground Research Facility to make room for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, the far site detector for Fermilab's Long Baseline Neutrino Facility—a groundbreaking global effort to unravel the mysteries of neutrinos.

Hear Arup engineers discuss how they are tackling unprecedented engineering challenges, including excavating the far site detector’s massive underground caverns; modernizing heating, cooling and ventilation in a historic mine; and protecting people working a mile beneath the surface from fire hazards.
