NASA Langley Research Center Headquarters Building

About

THIS PROJECT

The NASA Langley Research Center Headquarters Building is a three-story, 72,000 SF, environmentally conscious administration building. The facility includes audio/visual rooms, conference rooms, offices, workstation space, breakrooms and a large three-story atrium at the west end of the building. Almost all of the interior offices are constructed of demountable walls for future flexibility. The facility also includes an underfloor air distribution system.

Numerous mock-ups were used throughout the course of this project. This enabled us to construct specific details to evaluate installation durations, such as curtainwall and metal panels for the building exterior. We were able to review the finished products with the design team and owner to validate the expectations of the final product.

The project achieved LEED® Platinum certification and won the following awards:

  • 2012 Federal Energy and Water Management Award
  • 2011 GSA Real Property Innovation Award in the sustainability category
  • 2011 Best Green Building by ENR Southeast
  • GreenGov Presidential Award for Greening NASA Langley through Energy Conservation
  • 2011 Project Achievement Award by CMAA - National Capital Chapter
  • NASA Environment Energy Blue Marble Award

Sustainability

The LEED Platinum facility includes several sustainable features such as glass and metal panel skin, a green roof, geothermal wells and photovoltaic arrays. The roof of the penthouse is covered with a solar panel array, which generates approximately 22 kilowatts of power for the building. In addition, the skylight adjacent to the clerestory contains photovoltaic cells embedded in the glass, which generate 1.2 kilowatts of power for the building. There are also 90 400-foot-deep geothermal wells to provide heating and cooling in lieu of a boiler or chiller.
