NASA KSC Nitrogen and Helium Converter Compressor Facility
Design renovations include new electrical distribution service with emergency backup, lightning protection and grounding, fire alarm and oxygen deficiency monitoring system. Facility upgrades support the Space Launch System (SLS) Program and commercial spaceflight clients throughout the Cape Canaveral Spaceport.
SSPF Offline Science Processing Area Ammonia Vapor Containment Facility
NASA KSC facility renovation and expansion with new laboratories including electrical and fire alarm service. Design includes overhead service carriers for centrally located power and data services. Project enables NASA to meet the goals of the Mars 2020 program.
NASA KSC Vehicle Assembly Building High Bay 3 Environmental Control System
New design provides a constant, controlled source of purge air for manufacturing operations. Electrical service includes feeders, substations, PLC architecture and operator control station with redundancy. We apply design-for-maintenance (DFM) philosophies throughout the project including a new duct bank system.
NASA KSC Orbiter Processing Facilities 1 and 2
Design-build project to repurpose Orbiter Processing Facilities 1 and 2 for commercial spaceflight missions. New communications, hazardous gas detection, closed circuit television camera systems, white noise generation systems, and telephone and data services compliant with multiple Department of Defense security classification levels.
