RIBBON-CUTTING CEREMONY FOR SECOND OPERATIONS SUPPORT BUILDING

Kennedy Space Center Deputy Director Bill Parsons, members of center
management and local industry officials will participate in a
ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Operations Support Building (OSB) II
on Friday, March 24, at 9:30 a.m.

The OSB II is an agency safety and health initiative project to
replace modular housing and trailers in the Launch Complex 39 area.
The OSB II project eliminated 198,466 square feet of substandard
modular housing and trailers, equivalent to 276 singlewide trailers.
The facility represents a firm commitment by the center to provide a
safe, efficient and attractive workspace for the employees.

The new five-story, 189,000-square-foot building consists of
approximately 960 office spaces, a 300-person mission conference
center with observation deck, training rooms, computer rooms,
multimedia conference rooms, and technical libraries.

Media interested in attending the ceremony must arrive at the KSC
Press Site by 9 a.m. for transportation to the site. Media who do not
possess a permanent KSC badge, may apply for credentials through the
online media accreditation system at:

Architect and Engineers Wolfberg, Alvarez and Partners, Coral Gables,
Fla., designed the facility. Clancy & Theys, Orlando, Fla.,
constructed the facility.
