NASA Aerospace Communications Facility
Location: Cleveland, Ohio
Program: Research Laboratory
Status: In Design
Size: 55,000 sqft
The Aerospace Communications Facility (ACF) will consolidate research laboratories that are currently located in seven different buildings on Lewis Field into a single, state of the art research facility consisting of efficient, flexible communications laboratories, collaboration spaces, and information technology support areas. A prominent feature of the facade is an articulated skin that reflects that pragmatism of the campus by manipulating light, views, and reflectivity while paying homage to the research within.
The project is designed to be Net Zero Energy Ready (NZER), incorporating energy features identified in the Net Zero Energy Buildings Roadmap prepared by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).
