Project Narrative

This 146,500 ft2, 205 room Navy Lodge project was originally designed as 4 story wood over grade. When the Department of Defense updated their Unified Facilities Criteria, aggressive Anti Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP), Progressive Collapse, and blast resistance standards needed to be met. ConXtech’s inherently robust structural connection met and exceeded the criterium and was quickly converted to the ConXR structural solution. The frame erected in 25 working days.
