NASA Glenn Unveils New Mission Integration Center

NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland unveils its new Mission Integration Center at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 30.  Remarks by Jim Free, center director, as well as other senior NASA officials, will precede a ceremonial ribbon cutting.

Construction of the Mission Integration Center, or MIC, began at Lewis Field in September 2010.  The $20.5 million building was constructed to increase workforce efficiency by integrating approximately 300 employees, in various project teams, under one roof.  It is the latest facility to be completed under Glenn’s master plan for its campuses in Cleveland and Sandusky, Ohio.  Unveiled in 2007 and regularly updated, the master plan details a multi-year effort to renovate or replace World War II era buildings and facilities to meet NASA’s 21st century missions and create a consolidated energy-efficient center.

The 90,000-square foot MIC has achieved Gold certification by the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED.  LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings.  The MIC features an energy conserving “green roof,” high-efficiency windows and skylights, and a state of the art heating and cooling system. 

Media interested in attending the event must contact Frank Jennings, Jr. by email at francis.t.jennings@nasa.gov or by phone at 216- 433-2776 by 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 29 to arrange for required NASA security clearances.
