After the success of the 1st phase which it faces across the central plaza, the 2nd phase of this national equipment will host a wide panel of world-class research labs for the accurate measuring of gravity.

Besides following the design principles of the 1st phase, respecting the demanding site conditions and answering the very specific and technical needs of this kind of facility, the key of the 2nd phase is to find a right balance and scale with the 1st phase and the central plaza, with a clear hierarchy while following as well the master plan of the campus.
