Johnson Space Center LEED Office Facility for Transition
The first building in 17 years for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Johnson Space Center is also its first building to meet LEED Platinum qualifications. S&P made full use of building information modeling to complete this high-performance, 83,000 SF building before the scheduled deadline. Extensive use of recycled and local/regional building materials, low-E coated windows, solar water heating, and water-efficient plumbing fixtures are among a list of environmentally friendly attributes that far exceeded LEED requirements. The building earned numerous awards, including the ABC Excellence in Construction Award, AGC Texas Building Branch Outstanding Construction Award, AGC APEX Award, Texas Construction Judges Award and Texas Construction Best Green Building Award of Excellence.
