project at a glance

The 224,000 square foot Building Four at The National Museum of the United States Air Force connects to three aircraft-hangar-style buildings, providing expanded exhibit space for the Presidential Gallery, the Research & Development Gallery, a Space Gallery, and Global Reach Gallery.

The Space Gallery features NASA’s first Crew Compartment Trainer (CCT-1), a full-size representation of a NASA space shuttle payload bay, and the Titan 4B rocket which, at 204 feet tall, weighs in at 96 tons. Turner assisted with the prefabrication of a unique steel structure stand that protects and displays the Titan 4B,  elevating the rocket ten feet above the floor.

As an educational museum with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning, the building also houses a 60-seat interactive learning area for lectures and demonstrations, and space shuttle landing simulators so visitors can get a taste of what it might be like to be a shuttle pilot.
