Springfield Technology Park: Building 104 demolition begins in earnest next week, space where M1 Garand manufactured converted to school, parking and high-tech business space | masslive
Greeley estimates that more than $100 million has been spent on renovations, equipment and upgrades at Building 104 since 1941, each new user replacing outmoded technology with equipment that itself has now been consigned to history.
An example is a large clean room electronics company SpringBoard built to replace and earlier one used by Digital. Today, with only a few shafts of natural light penetrate into the room. Massive overhead filters once cleaned the air. A perforated floor designed to suck away dust and contaminates feels spongy underfoot.
