NASA Awards Contract for Construction of New R&D Facility in Cleveland

NASA awarded a contract to Austin Building and Design, doing business as The Austin Company, in Cleveland, to build a new Aerospace Communications Facility at the agency’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.

The firm-fixed-price contract runs through Sept. 28, 2021, and includes six options for potential changes in project scope, giving the contract a maximum potential value of approximately $33.8 million.

The project includes installation of a geothermal borehole field, new asphalt parking areas, exterior site work, landscaping, and the extension of underground utilities as required. The building is designed to achieve, at a minimum, a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating of Silver and comply with Life Safety and Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

The new 54,000 square-foot building will house approximately 25 research and development laboratories specially designed and constructed for communication technologies. In addition to laboratory spaces, the building and grounds will include a large, shielded high-bay space, as well as rooftop and ground-based antennae fields.
