Finishing touches adorn the Propellants North Administrative and Maintenance Facility at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Artwork for the facility was produced by Greg Lee, a graphics specialist with Abacus Technology Corp., with input from the facility's future occupants. The environmentally friendly facility is slated to be NASA's second Platinum-rated by the U.S. Green Building Council's (USGBC) Leadership in Environmental and Energy Design (LEED) certification system. It will be the space agency's first net-zero facility, which means it will produce enough energy onsite from renewable sources to offset what it requires to operate.
The facility consists of a two-story administrative building to house managers, mechanics and technicians who fuel spacecraft at Kennedy, and a single-story shop to store cryogenic fuel transfer equipment. Photo credit: NASA/Frankie Martin
