NASA New Office Building


Walter P Moore provided civil and structural engineering services for the LEED Platinum certified 83,000 SF office building. Designed to be flexible, the three-story facility contains an interior that can be easily rearranged to meet the occupant's changing needs. 

NASA constructed this new $25 million office building to accommodate 400 employees on a temporary basis and 120 employees on a permanent basis. The facility will be used to house employees displaced by renovations at other NASA facilities. The displaced employees will move into this facility while renovations are completed on their current location. This will occur over the next ten years.

The civil work for the project consists of permeable concrete pavement for the north parking lot, and 7-inch concrete pavement for the south parking lot, adjacent to the new building. The site/building utilities consist of sanitary sewer, and water lines. The building site is partially within a floodplain. The project storm sewer system consisting of a series of catch basins to serve the building is routed to an onsite detention pond sized for added impervious areas of the site outfalling to an existing 78-inch RCP storm sewer system to the south. Site CHS/CHR lines are also shown on our site plans for clarification with the project MEP plans.
