MOOG In-Space Propulsion (ISP) is a leading innovator and supplier of liquid rocket engines, tanks, and propulsion systems for commercial, defense, and spacecraft launch vehicles. Continued demand for their rocket engine assemblies has created a need for major industrial processes and code related improvements at the Niagara Falls, NY Campus.
The second project phase of four total phases requires construction of an 8,000 s.f. state-of-the-art building to house propellant run tanks, storage tanks, as well as process piping that transports propellants to test cell vacuum chambers that mimic the atmospheric conditions of space during hot-fire rocket engine testing.
The proposed building features insulated pre-cast concrete wall panels and concrete hollow core roof planks which provide a robust, yet relatively quickly eractable building shell. The interior of the building integrates a series of spill containment & fire suppression water containment trenches and metal grating systems that complies with code requirements for hazardous material storage.
