This 24-month renovation of Building 12 – one of Johnson Space Center’s oldest original permanent buildings – touched the entire facility, including interior, exterior skin and roof. The 65,000 SF remodel and build-out  enable the facility to build upon its half-century of NASA service and continue supporting Johnson Space Center operations for another half-century. The numerous energy-efficient and environmentally friendly features incorporated throughout Building 12 met LEED Gold criteria. A standout feature of the project is the 35,000 SF green roof with nearly 75,000 plants, which is a first at the space center.

Using BIM to precisely determine the proper layout of under-floor systems provided more certainty in estimates of materials quantities and labor requirements, resulting in a savings of approximately $150,000.
