SCRA-McNAIR Center for Aerospace Innovation
The USC/McNAIR Innovation Center is a 13,500 SF advanced composite materials research facility, located within the SCRA’s Columbia office. The up-fit took place in a section of the structure that had been left as warehouse space. An open office environment was created in the front, with surrounding offices and meeting rooms. A mezzanine level sits above, with conference room and additional offices.
In addition to the main work areas, a fiber placement machine is housed an adjacent space. Several structural and mechanical upgrades were necessary to house this specialized equipment, used in developing lightweight composite structures used in aircraft components.
