Jacobs Engineering
Group Inc. announced today that a subsidiary company has
been selected for negotiation by the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA) to provide design and other professional
services required to revitalize and upgrade the Operation and Checkout
Building (O&C) at Kennedy Space Center, Fla. The project also involves
programming, interior design, and program/construction management

The magnitude of each phase of construction is expected to exceed
$5 million. Concept validation and design is expected to commence in
late August 2004.

Originally built in the 1950s, this is the first major renovation
to the entire 200,000-square-foot O&C building. The renovation
includes the removal/demolition of all interior systems, replacing
them with modern, energy-efficient systems.

Jacobs is providing a design to strive for certification in the
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s Green Building rating
system. The design and construction of the O&C comprises several
phases over multiple years.

In making the announcement, Jacobs Group Vice President Warren
Dean stated, “We are excited to continue our 40-year history with NASA
as part of this very important project. The opportunity to provide
design and program/construction management services to Kennedy Space
Center’s O&C Building further strengthens our commitment to helping
NASA meet their critical mission requirements.”
