JP Donovan Construction provided Design/Build, General Contract and Project Management services for this DX-A2 government rated, high-bay satellite processing facility. Working closely with our customer, JP Donovan developed all design and construction documentation as well as provided construction and commissioning services.  This facility was constructed as an addition/ alteration to an existing processing facility, and included renovation of 8,000 square feet and the addition of 21,000 square feet of SCIF spacecraft processing area.
