Commercial Crew Transportation Capability Access Tower

IMEG provided engineering support to Hensel Phelps for the construction of launch site accommodations to support manned space flight off of Space Launch Complex 41 (SLC-41) at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Our team provided construction administration support in the building of this complex structure. Previously, our team provided engineering services to design the

New Replacement Door Assembly

On October 24, 2005 Hurricane Wilma blew through the LC-41 pad and precipitated the catastrophic failure of a major portion of the 40-ft wide by 280-ft tall folding fabric door (Megadoor) on the vertical integration facility (VIF), which houses the launch vehicle that was inside. IMEG was on-site the following day to assist with the

Renovation of an Aerospace Ground Support Facility

IMEG developed a solution for Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company to transit the Launch Abort System (LAS) through an enlarged opening above the existing door of the former NASA Canister Rotation Facility. Launch Abort System Facility (LASF) modifications and renovations involved changes to the facility infrastructure to accommodate and support the Orion spacecraft operations when

Mobile Launch Tower

The mobile launch tower is a 350-foot tall, 9,000,000-pound structure intended to support the next generation Constellation space craft from assembly to lift off. Construction engineering services include the design of temporary erection fixtures and foundations so all tiers can be ground constructed with the fixture connection matching the tier splice interface, allow for assistance

Lightning Tower Installation

IMEG provided construction engineering support for installation of three 600 foot tall lightning towers and associated cable arrays at the Constellation space craft launch pad (the replacement vehicle for the space shuttle). Engineering services included a custom rigging design for lifting the tower tiers and 100 foot long lightning mast, tower splice connection design, monitoring
