NASA Flight Vehicle and Landing Support Complex

NASA needed a new mission control and support building at the shuttle landing strip at NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center for the next generation of space shuttle: Lockheed Martin's X-33 (X-33 and X-34 have since been scrapped by NASA while Lockheed Martin is continuing its next generation space shuttle research into lifting body design). Working with Jones Edmunds and Associates Inc., or JEA, the complex was designed and examined as a digital model before the complex was constructed.
