The firm has designed several major warehouses for the Naval Construction Battalion Center. The most significant of those projects are the two very large Controlled Humidity Warehouses along 28th Street. This was a prototype project, and we were challenged to design, in addition to the building, a crane system capable of off-loading to either rail cars or trucks. This was accomplished with multiple rail-mounted transfer cranes. The firm has received letters of commendation from the US Navy for excellent performance.
