CCAFS General Plan
USAF 45th Space Wing, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida
The 45th Space Wing of the U.S. Air Force engaged ZHA to create, develop and provide the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station General Plan (GP). Services performed included the future visioning of both vertical and horizontal launch facilities at Cape Canaveral. In addition, ZHA provided analysis and solutions for consolidation of administration and support facilities, the location of future integration and processing facilities, and the use of the port operations area.
The program for future development of Cape Canaveral was to include a 20-year planning period and Near Term Area Development Plans (NTADP) beginning in 2010. A 50-year outlook was first developed along with coordinated Long Term Area Development Plans (LTADP). The plan proposed a significant increase in commercial launch and helped to guide Military Construction (MILCON) budget and other related funding efforts. The plans were coordinated with a proposed Capital improvement Program (CIP) and funding schedule. The CIP included new construction, rehabilitation, normal and preventative maintenance for all horizontal and vertical projects. It also estimated potential savings in the long-term sustainment and optimization of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station facilities and infrastructure.
