This was the Seed Project for the Design-Build/Design-Bid-Build Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) for new construction, renovations, alterations, and repair projects for facilities in the Hampton Roads Area. This project consisted of a 44,000 SF addition to Building 1500 at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. The addition is 6-floors high with a pile supported foundation. The primary use of the addition is office space. It meets ATFP requirements including progressive collapse. Additional surface parking was required to accommodate an additional 344 vehicles. Standoff distances and separation requirements, including an 82’ (25m) setback from vehicle parking and existing roadways, and a 33’ (10m) effective standoff distance, was maintained in accordance with the criteria for controlled perimeters.
