Representing nearly 6.3 million square feet of building space spread across twin towers of 15- and 17- stories, and with overall construction cost of approximately $4 billion, the development, also referred to as BRAC-133, is one of the largest to date as a result of the 2005 round of Base Realignment and Closures (BRAC). It is the tallest structure ever completed for the U.S. Army.
Tidewater Glazing was awarded the contract to furnish and install over 140,000 square feet of blast-resistant windows and curtain walls on the exterior façade, as well as curtain wall and aluminum composite panel systems at the parking garage. The award required us to work collaboratively with the design team and contractor to develop systems, means and methods, and schedules consistent with the Corps’ RFP and delivery requirements.
During construction, the building design remained an evolution. The final design was completed at the same time the building’s envelope was watertight.The overall project was delivered 36 days ahead of schedule and $60 million under budget.
Upon completion, the project was awarded LEED Gold certification.
