Nelson Engineering performs Commercial Maintenance Assessments for numerous clients, most recently at Kennedy Space Center, FL and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL. Facilities include the former Space Shuttle Orbiter Processing Facilities 1, 2 and 3; Delta Processing Facilities; Large Processing Facility and Satellite Assembly Building.

Assessments focus on providing ownership cost based on commercial industry standards for using previously government-run facilities for commercial endeavors. The assessments identify major deficiencies within the facilities, required capital improvements, and operations and maintenance cost projections. Typical assessment products:

  • Capital improvement cost requirements over a long range schedule (typically 20 years).
  • Annual operations and maintenance costs based on commercial practices for maintaining facility equipment.
  • Five year projection of utility cost (integrated into the overall cost of ownership).
