Over the last 8 years, Development One has completed a number of “mission critical” infrastructure projects at Armstrong Flight Research Center under an IDIQ Agreement. Projects have included:
Utilities Master Plan
Development One assisted NASA with the creation of a Utilities Master Plan that would set the course for planned infrastructure upgrades throughout the facility over the next twenty years. The Utility Master Plan includes upgrade plans for:
- Fire Water Mains
- Domestic Water
- Sanitary Sewer
- Natural Gas
- Electrical Distribution System
- Storm Drain
Revitalize Industrial / Potable Water Distribution System
Development One recently completed the design phase for this project to re-pipe the existing domestic water supply serving the entire NASA complex. The new system will provide:
- Loop circulation
- Smart water meters (and connection to the energy management system)
- Back flow prevention for each building.
Water treatment will be implemented for all of the buildings in the scope of the project. Additionally, buildings currently piped with galvanized steel domestic piping will be re-piped new copper throughout.
Repair Primary Electrical Distribution System Phases 4-8
Development One has completed a series of projects for the repair and improvements to the Electrical Distribution system throughout Armstrong Flight Research Center. A sampling of improvements made over the course of these projects include:
- Design of an Electrical Substation to enhance power reliability for Armstrong’s mission critical IT/Data Center (CITC).
- Performed assessments and replacement of underground high-voltage conductors located throughout the Center.
- A new primary electrical distribution center building was designed to house the main NASA Armstrong Electrical substation.
- Conducted upgrades and replacements as necessary for multiple substations throughout the Center.
- Provided vital backup power to the mission critical Aeronautical Tracking Facility Remote Site, which tracks the International Space Station.
