Air Force New Institute of Aerospace Medicine Master Plan

Facility Programming and Consulting was engaged by the Army Corps of Engineers (through KZF/BW) to do preliminary Master Plan programming for the relocation of five organizations from Brooks City-Base, Pensacola Naval Station, Holloman Air Force Base, and Mesa Arizona, to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.  These groups are the cornerstones of the new Institute of Aerospace Medicine (IAM). The IAM brings together research, education, and clinical pieces of Air Force and Naval Aerospace Medicine within a campus like setting.

The new campus is comprised of two structures that house chemical, biological, neurological, and physiological human research facilities inclusive of two animal research vivariums: 2,000 new SF on the main campus, and 4,000 SF of large animal vivarium as an addition to an existing facility. Also included is a full insectary. In addition to animal research vivariums, there is also classroom, auditorium, and laboratory teaching spaces.
