The concrete-block masonry walls of NASA Dryden's new Facilities Support Center are rising as captured in this photo taken May 23 from the top of Dryden's main building.

Following completion of underground infrastructure and installation of a retaining wall in recent weeks, masons began erecting the concrete-block walls of the new Facilities Support Center at NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center during the week of May 21.

The masonry work is expected to be complete by August, followed by construction and installation of the structural steel for the building’s framework, according to Dryden architect Gemma Flores, manager of the project. The structure is currently about 10 percent complete, she added.

The $11.2 million, 38,000-square-foot structure is designed to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) platinum certification standard for environment and energy efficiency.

Designed by the Development One architectural firm of Santa Ana, Calif., the new structure is being built by Comfort and Hays Electric, Inc. of Long Beach, Calif. Contractor officials report the project is a couple of weeks ahead of schedule as they work toward a completion date of July 2013.
