RQ is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the design and construction of an academic and applied instruction facility for ship repair training at Norfolk Naval Shipyard. The project will provide a four- to six-story building with a structural steel frame with columns and joists. The building exterior walls will consist of brick veneer cavity wall construction with reinforced concrete masonry unit back-up with a sloped standing-seam metal roof over structural steel framing. The facility will be constructed to meet the acoustical performance criteria design for schools. Additional features include a raised loading dock, mechanical/electrical equipment rooms, fire protection room, micro-exchange for student support, telecom rooms, passenger elevators, freight elevator, security and fire detection alarms, mass notification systems, and all necessary components for the intruder detection system.
