Project Narrative

Armed Forces Reserve Center (AFRC) located at Moffett Field, CA. Upon completion, the project was LEED® certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. The 30-acre site supports regional Army Reserve units with an Armed Forces Reserve Center, a Regional Readiness Support Command headquarters and a fitness center. The 186,500 square-foot AFRC building provides areas for administration, training, physical fitness and equipment, and associated locker and shower space.

Project Challenges / Special Considerations

DoD requirements included Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) steel design. A large conference area yielded large trusses connected to steel moment frames. Integrated the structural steel with a demanding radiused entry column design, yielding a superior finished product.
