Summary

Significance: This building is a primary contributor of the Rocky Flats Plant historic district, and is associated with the U.S. strategy of nuclear military deterrence during the Cold War, a strategy considered of major importance in preventing Soviet nuclear attack. As production of nuclear weapons increased, space in Buildings 881 & 444, (enriched uranium and depleted uranium parts manufacturing) became inadequate. Building 883 was constructed to handle additional uranium rolling and forming operations.
Survey number: HAER CO-83-R
