MSOB
« on: 04/10/2009 09:39 PM »
Does anyone have a layout of the MSOB (Manned Spacecraft Operations Building, which currently the O&C Building) for Apollo?    I have looked high and low online.

Try the building department in the appropriate county.  There are usually Permit sets available for public review, even tho they may be archived.  With teh right paperwork, you could get them scanned to PDF.  The downside is that they won't contain any building mods  since the structure was built, unless it was a major renovation of some sort.
Sometimes I just flat out don't get it.

You can try the FDEP or SJRWMD websites. A facility that size would have required a Environmental Resource Permit. At least it would need one today, I don't know about the Apollo days though.

Send out an RFP to an architectural firm to measure the building.  I'll put in a plug for Design / Program Associates

I am looking for operational layout vs floor plans

Here is a 1965 NASA photo that contains a layout of the crew quarters. Above is NASA's scan I found online. Below that is a scan of my own print.

Jeez - talk about charmless decor...

I like how the receptionist's area appears to be an afterthought.
