Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB)


Kennedy Space Center FL

Scope of Work:

Removal of hazardous paints and coatings including PCB’s and Inorganic Zinc from the entire High Bay 3 inside the VAB. Our team designed and developed a specialized Spyder basket system that allowed our workers to access the steel beam from the ground floor all the way to the highest elevation at 500 feet in the air (but still inside the building). Our scope also included selective demolition of building systems to allow for the new construction of the modular platforms and the SLS rocket system.

Completion Date:

September 2017
