Optimizing a mission
The Air Force Technical Applications Center's mission is to enhance national security. It detects nuclear activity across the globe: underground, underwater, in the atmosphere, or in space; ensuring that countries adhere to their nuclear treaties. State-of-the-art facilities are crucial to this mission.
Flad developed design-build bridging documents to replace an outdated building with a LEED Silver 276,000-square-foot, command and control replacement facility. In addition, the project incorporates a new 38,000-square-foot radiochemistry lab with suites for sample characterization, radiochemistry operations/analysis, alpha/beta/gamma counting, and mass spectrometry.
