NOAA CELEBRATES NEW BUILDING SITE SELECTION

NOAA CELEBRATES NEW BUILDING SITE SELECTION
University of Maryland Enterprise Campus, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and others celebrated the launch of M-Square, a new crossroad where government, private industry, technology and science converge to be one of the nation’s largest research parks.

The new building will replace NOAA’s existing World Weather Building in Camp Springs, Md., and employ approximately 800 people. The new 250,000 sq. ft. facility is expected to break ground in April 2005 and open in late 2007.

This site will be the headquarters for NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Prediction. Five of the nine national centers will be located at M-Square. They are the:Climate Prediction Center, Environmental Modeling Center, Hydrometeorological Prediction Center, NCEP Central Operations, Ocean Prediction Center,

Also, the facility will house three other NOAA offices: the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research’s Air Resources Laboratory and the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service’s Satellite Services Division and NESDIS’ Office of Research and Applications.
