GSA in partnership with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is proud to announce the completion of the new Langley Research Center headquarters in Hampton,Virginia. The project will save $2.5 million annually, and is part of GSA’s ongoing push to make more efficient use of government assets while providing the best value for American taxpayers.
GSA is incredibly honored to have the opportunity to provide innovative and efficient solutions for NASA’s oldest research center. The new facility uses an average of 59 percent less energy and uses 41 percent less potable water than other office buildings, saving $2.5 million annually in operations and maintenance costs. The facility’s sustainable features have earned LEED Platinum certification. In addition, the project has won six awards, including the prestigious Gold-Level 2012 Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell’s Environmental Excellence Award.
The completion of the headquarters is only the first step of a larger project called the New NASA Town, which is centered around the Langley facility. Together, GSA and NASA have embarked upon a partnership creating a long-term facilities modernization program with this multi-year project.
A fundamental part of the GSA mission is to support other federal agencies by promoting efficiency and getting the best deal for American taxpayers. By creating sustainable and energy efficient workspaces that are built to last, GSA helps the government be better stewards of taxpayer dollars.
