As NASA’s Kennedy Space Center transitions to a multi-user, 21st century spaceport, the new Headquarters Building will be the cornerstone of the central campus consolidation. The ultra-modern seven-story, 200,000-square-foot facility will house about 500 NASA civil service and contractor employees.
Carrying the space theme, each floor of the 200,000-square-foot headquarters building will be accented with the colors of planets in our solar system, with soothing earth-toned break rooms. Energy-efficient LED lighting will illuminate offices throughout the facility. Cost-saving, environmentally friendly innovations continue outside with reflective roofing materials, dual electric vehicle battery charging stations in parking areas, and landscaping with native plants to reduce the need for watering. The project’s LEED objective is to attain Silver Certification v3-2009.
