This 4,320 sf building provides office and engineering space in support of the final system integration and flight test activities for the Multinational MEADS Air Defense Program. Developed as a design-build project for El Paso-based CF Jordan Construction, the facility was installed on a heavily reinforced nine-inch concrete slab foundation designed to withstand any ground movement from testing activity around the surrounding area. To help achieve this stability, Ramtech attached the structure to 24 x 24 plinths, comprised of steel reinforced block piers connected to the concrete slab with #6 dowels and #3 horizontal ties. Built to meet Anti-Terrorism/ Force Protection compliance, the building incorporates vandal resistant security bars over the windows with fragment retention film on the windowpanes.
