SUPPORTING HEROES THROUGH SAFE, SOUND DESIGN
With hundreds of federal facilities designed by our team, we offer an innate understanding of the complexities and nuances that are part of all federal and municipal projects. But there are more important things than knowing the difference between an IDIQ and a MATOC. For us, that means designing buildings that will protect, honor, and serve a generation of heroes serving for us.
SECURITY BY DESIGN
Across more than half a million square feet of facilities, the highly secure Air Force Technical Applications Center is now home to an impressive array of technology and capabilities like mission-critical monitoring for a network of ground and space-based sensors for detecting nuclear detonations worldwide, and a Class 10,000 clean room to monitor vibration and electromagnetic interference.
Ready for Anything
Due to the sensitive nature, the project included extensive communication and information systems designed to comply with Department of Defense (DOD) anti-terrorism force protection (AFTP) requirements conforming to United Facilities Criteria (UFC) and can withstand hurricane force winds up to 140 mph.
One important feature that proves just how critical this facility is to our national security is its design for progressive collapse. This means a detonation or something of similar impact could take out a critical supporting structural column and other sections of the building will remain safely standing.
