By using precast concrete, this project incorporated a level of design into a public building that makes it much more of a civic space. The large, all-in-one panels also reduced joints, reducing long-term maintenance. Casting the components in a controlled environment also enhanced the overall quality and tolerances of the pieces produced.

The precast concrete facade proved to be a key part of the success of the building, the base’s largest single construction project since World War II and the district’s most expensive project ever. The panels provided a level of quality control and uniformity above expectations for a huge project that would have been a challenge for local masons, the designer said.

The project consisted of 972 precast pieces and 129,501 SF of precast panels on 7 buildings in one complex. The massive sunshades,along with the insulated panels helped the project receive the LEED Silver Certification.
