About the Marshall Space Flight Center

The NASA Marshall Space Flight Center is a test and development facility located at the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. Building 4200, the first NASA facility built at the Redstone Arsenal in 1964, served as the administrative headquarters of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center for nearly 60 years. The personnel within the building lead many of our nation’s groundbreaking space exploration and discovery missions.

The historic building began its legacy with Werner von Braun’s administration through the rocket program and most recently held Jody Singer, the current and first female director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. In line with a Facilities Reduction Program, Marshall’s master plan included the demolition of 4200 to make way for a new headquarters.

Snyder Environmental, as a subcontractor to Target Contractors, provided the Asbestos Abatement, Universal Waste Removal, and Interior Demolition of the 11-story 233,519 sq ft building. The abatement was completed utilizing a robust workforce that ensured completion within a tight, 5-month schedule. Snyder worked in close coordination with Target Contractors to complete the abatement scope on schedule, prior to the final implosion of the building.

Building 4200 leaves a long legacy of successful NASA projects. Snyder was proud to be instrumental in the successful decommissioning of this historical building, making way for new innovative programs at the Marshall Space Flight Center.
