NASA Warfighting Support Center

Stennis Space Center, MS

A design-build project, the Warfighting Support Facility is a two-story, 30,000-square-foot addition to the Naval Oceanographic office building at Stennis Space Center. This building includes administrative areas, data and telemetry areas to support the NAVO mission. The exterior of this addition features precast concrete panels that match the design and finish of the existing adjacent building in terms of flute design and spacing, exposed aggregate finish and horizontal joints.

NASA National Center for Critical Information Processing & Storage

Stennis Space Center, Mississippi

The project was a phased renovation of the existing Army Ammunition Plant at John C. Stennis Space Center. The exterior perimeter of the buildings were enhanced and upgraded to meet SCIF requirements and aesthetic considerations. This project established and expanded a secure 50,000sf facility capable of hosting, storing, managing, and distributing Critical Infrastructure Information (CII). This project was designed to meet existing and emerging requirements for advanced, large-scale information technology (IT) environments necessary to support the Navy, the Department of Defense, and other federal agencies.

Infinity Science Center

Stennis Space Center, Mississippi

INFINITY at NASA Stennis Space Center is a new, state-of-the-art science center with exhibits and galleries devoted to space exploration, deep ocean exploration and the varied layers of the Earth's biosphere. The building is a two-story braced-steel frame with stucco and metal exterior and full height expanses of curtain wall. In addition to NASA meeting facilities and administrative offices, a cafeteria, gift shop and an array of classrooms the facility contains a number of sophisticated themed educational galleries:

Science Express
Immersive 3D Theater
Earth Gallery
Space Gallery
Missions Interactive Gallery
Rooftop Garden

The INFINITY architecture is a sustainable design that demonstrates a physical integration with the landscape, a respect for limited resources, and applied principals of conservation that visitors can observe as part of their guest experience. The addition’s exterior relates to its surrounding context by use of existing materials (brick, cast stone, glass with sun shade devices) while attempting to explore new design possibilities which in turn can aid in recruitment of research personnel.
