Jones Edmunds has assisted NASA and other government agencies in assessing, planning, and designing the partial deconstruction or full demolition of facilities and structures. Deconstruction and demolition are important parts of a facility’s life cycle and are crucial for reducing unnecessary operations and maintenance costs associated with underused or outdated facilities and structures.
Our associates have assisted NASA with the study, design, and construction phase services for the deconstruction of facilities and structures for over 350 facilities, spaces, and structures across KSC and CCAFS, totaling over 2.5 million square feet. Through the use of alternative asbestos management procedures, NASA will save approximately $4 million on the demolition of the Headquarters and the Central Instrumentation Facility buildings.
Jones Edmunds has been NASA’s system engineer for facilities demolition and deconstruction projects at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station since 2000, providing design and construction phase services for numerous obsolete buildings and structures, including Shuttle Launch Complex Pad 39B.
Integral to these designs is hazardous materials assessment, including asbestos-containing materials (ACM), heavy metals, polychlorinatedbiphenyls (PCBs), and hazardous/ controlled wastes; and utilities disconnect design including power, communications, water, wastewater, chilled water, cryogenics, and high and low pressure gases. We also provide construction-phase support for demolition and deconstruction projects to help our clients ensure that systems such as fluids, gases, power, and communications are properly disconnected, isolated, and removed safely.
