CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - Concrete is poured into the trenches that will provide the foundation for the walls of the Propellants North Administrative and Maintenance Facility in Launch Complex 39 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.    A tilt-up construction method is being used to erect a THERMOMASS concrete wall insulation system for the facility's walls.  The facility will have a two-story administrative building to house managers, mechanics and technicians who fuel spacecraft at Kennedy adjacent to an 1,800-square-foot single-story shop to store cryogenic fuel transfer equipment.  The new facility will feature high-efficiency roofs and walls, “Cool Dry Quiet” air conditioning with energy recovery technology, efficient lighting, and other sustainable features. The facility is striving to qualify for the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, Platinum certification. If successful, Propellants North will be the first Kennedy facility to achieve this highest of LEED ratings after it is completed in the summer of 2010.  The facility was designed for NASA by Jones Edmunds and Associates.  Photo credit: NASA/Jim Grossmann KSC-2009-6794
