CLEVELAND — A brand new Research Support Building (RSB) has opened at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new building took place on Monday morning, followed by an open house for Glenn employees. NASA is working on a multi-year effort in order to renovate the World War II-era buildings, and the RSB is one of the many projects that are part of NASA's Facility Master Plan.
According to NASA officials, the RSB will be a campus center where employees can meet and collaborate to further NASA's future mission needs, including the return of astronauts to the moon. The building will be home to 164 employees with open office areas, private offices, conference rooms, collaborative engineering rooms, a gift shop, credit union and cafeteria.
NASA received an award for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification thanks to the building’s environmental features. More information on the NASA Glen Research Center can be found HERE.
