The new building will be fully outfitted with fire alarm control panels and smoke detection systems and equipped with automatic fire sprinklers and air-conditioning/ventilation systems with built-in passive radon mitigation system and kitchen and food service equipment. This facility is being constructed with Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) features that will comply to AT/FP regulations and physical security in accordance with DoD’s Minimum Anti-Terrorism Standards for Buildings.
Site preparation work will involve site clearing and earthwork to allow for paving and site improvements consisting of a 116-vehicle parking facility; road and pedestrian paving; fencing and gates; grade walls; LPG tank and fuel storage wall enclosures; landscaping and other miscellaneous site improvements. The building will be designed with Smart grid capabilities.
