Orbiter Processing Facilities


Kennedy Space Center Florida

Scope of Work

Complete demolition of all 3 space shuttle hangers that were 90′ tall and covered a total of 150,000 square feet. This was a very complex project since the main hanger super structure which was only inches away from the Orbiter Support Structures could not get damaged. We developed a unique system to protect all of the historic systems and components before starting the demolition and successfully removed over 4,000 tons of steel without any damage to the items remaining.
