NASA Awards Architectural Contract For New Complex At Kennedy
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- NASA has selected Hunton Brady Architects, P.A. of Orlando, Fla., to provide design, engineering, and other professional services required to develop a Central Campus Complex at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The Central Campus Complex involves consolidating multiple facilities through new construction, the progressive deconstruction of targeted facilities and the potential renovation of existing facilities.

The new indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract begins Sept. 27, with a five-year base ordering period and potentially five, one-year options. The maximum potential value of this contract is $25 million.

Hunton Brady Architects will provide project professional services, including conducting field investigations, topographical surveys, analysis of existing and planned work and support systems, preparing design packages, engineering studies and/or reports of recommended actions. The firm will develop complete design packages and provide studies, surveys, reports, environmental permit applications and environmental certificates of compliance.

Hunton Brady Architects also will perform other professional architectural and engineering services which include project management, construction management and inspection services, preparation of historical documentation, review of shop drawings and resolution of construction issues. The contract will create as-built drawings to support all phases of the work throughout design and construction.

The Central Campus Complex project will be designed to earn the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) Silver status and strive for the highest achievable rating based on life cycle costs.
