‘Sustainability Base’ to serve as window to the future. NASA Turns to Space Technologies For ‘Highest Performing’ Building MOFFETT FIELD, Calif.—NASA is constructing what it says will be the U.S. government’s highest performing building. Ground was broken in August for the building, which will be known as Sustainability Base. The name is intended to honor the original “Tranquility Base” of the historic Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969. “We believe that Sustainability Base will serve as a window to the future of humankind and a symbol of NASA’s continu- ing leadership in seeing, understanding and benefiting life on Earth,” said a NASA spokesperson. The steel frame, two-story building at NASA’s Ames Research Center here will include 50,000 ft2 (4600 m2) of open office space, lunchrooms and a glass-walled atrium. The building will showcase sustainable technologies. These include advanced recycling and intelligent control technologies originally developed to support NASA’s human and robotic space exploration missions. It is designed for net zero energy consumption, and to use 90% less potable water than conventionally built buildings of equivalent size. Features include approximately 72 geothermal wells using ground-source heat pumps, and landscaping with Californianative plants. In addition, the company will install sophisticated systems for solar water heating, fire detection and suppression, advanced lighting, security, communications operations and site storm water management. These systems will be designed to anticipate and react to changes in sunlight, temperature, wind, and use of resources and will automatically optimize the building’s performance. Swinerton Inc. of San Francisco is constructing the building. It has a firm-fixed-price contract valued at $20,626,000. Construction will be completed within 390 days. www.info.hotims.com/25208-1 www.info.hotims.com/25208-33 8 ASHRAE Journal September 2009
