Parsons Congratulates LIGO Team on 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics

Parsons architecturally designed, engineered, and supervised the construction of two laser interferometer gravitational wave observation facilities.

Parsons congratulates Rainer Weiss, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Kip Thorne and Barry Barish, the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatories (LIGO) team for winning the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics! We’re honored to have provided design and construction management for LIGO facilities including 4-km-long laser tubes to detect gravitational waves, and used a building information modeling process to help Caltech and MIT scientists visualize and engineer the facilities.
