WPAFB-NATIONAL AIR AND SPACE INTELLIGENCE CENTER (NASIC)
88 Civil Engineering Group, on behalf of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center
The National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC) creates integrated, predictive intelligence in the air, space, and cyberspace domains that enable military operations, acquisition decisions and policymaking for the U.S. Air Force. After experiencing steady growth in recent years, NASIC has outgrown its campus at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in Dayton, Ohio.
Over five decades, the NASIC campus has expanded to 773,000 square feet, with approximately 3,400 personnel housed in eight facilities and a modular trailer. NASIC needs to thoughtfully expand its current land area to accommodate both personnel and mission requirements.
Woolpert, a longtime WPAFB and Air Force partner, was tasked with creating an area development plan as a roadmap to strengthen and support current and future growth of NASIC facilities while enhancing WPAFB. The plan provides a long-range facility strategy to meet current NASIC requirements and accommodate the anticipated growth of that mission while preserving valuable real estate and protecting precious construction funding.
Woolpert created a plan that provides effective, efficient, and right-sized facilities by addressing existing space, infrastructure and facility deficiencies, as well as planning for growth. Infrastructure changes include relocating their existing central utility plant to a location more easily accessed by utility maintenance personnel and away from primary entrances.
The plan increases the campus size by over 900,000 gross square feet over four phases of development, starting in fiscal year 2019 with future phases planned as needed.
