Abstract:

Hanscom AFB proposes to construct a new Acquisition Management Facility within the Electronic Systems Center ESC campus to replace an aging structure built in 1953-1955. The new Acquisition Management Facility would be located on-base within the same parcel as the existing building which currently provides this function Bldg 1600. The project would be constructed in two phases. The first phase would create a new 2- to 3-story, 40,000 square foot office building the second phase would add a modular 30,000 square foot extension to the proposed building. Also, during the second phase, the existing Bldg 1600 would be demolished. Parking needs would also be provided for in stages, with reconfiguration of the existing parking lots andor creation of a new lot to provide the 150 to 160 parking spaces required for the facility inclusive of both phases. The Environmental Assessment EA prepared for the proposed action addresses the site specific impacts of constructing the new Acquisition Management Facility and demolishing the existing Bldg 1600, and evaluates the consequences of the new facility on both the natural and man-made environments. The new Acquisition Management Facility will provide for the relocation of personnel from a rapidly deteriorating building that is beyond its useful life with HV AC, electrical, lighting, and structural deficiencies. The proposed project will provide a modem, aesthetically pleasing, functional, and efficient office space to support acquisition activities within the ESC Campus.
