    Aviation Weather Center and National Weather Service
Training Center
Kansas City, Missouri
The $15 million facility includes the regional headquarters for the National Weather Service, a state-of-the-art auditorium, classrooms, Class A office space and conference rooms. The Center features the most current technology in weather forecasting and advanced computer equipment, including Doppler radar and Automated Surface Observation System.
 
The National Weather Service Training Center (NWSTC) provides technical and professional training to NWS meteorologists, hydrologists, electronic technicians and other personnel. The Aviation Weather Center (AWC) provides warnings, forecasts and computational analysis of hazardous weather to enhance safety for domestic and international aviation. Both entities provide training and services vital to the nationís security and are now co-located in a 100,000-square-foot national facility, providing significant economies and efficiencies.

Keenan Development was chosen to provide a full range of development services for this project, from transaction structuring and development to quality assurance and quality control.

The $15 million facility includes the regional headquarters for the NWS, a state-of-the-art auditorium, classrooms, Class A office space and conference rooms.
The Center features the most current technology in weather forecasting and advanced computer equipment, including Doppler radar and Automated Surface Observation System.

Since both entities require continuous operation 24/7/365, the facility includes redundant electrical systems supported by three separate generators and UPS systems. The dual occupancy of the building required that a flexible mechanical system be utilized. Computer support areas and forecasting areas are served by dedicated computer units for maximum flexibility and efficiency.

As is the case with all Keenan Development projects, the National Weather Service Training Center and Aviation Weather Center were completed on time and within budget.
