William Podolsky designed the 35,000 SF flight and logistics center on a master planned 5-acre site in rural southern Arizona near the US/Mexico border. The building combines an open office plan with high-tech electronics testing and assembly areas used to assemble the “Hunter” UAV. The selected structural system provides large open areas enabling flexibility in the open office planning, as well as allowing for the Hunter to be completely assembled within the confines of the building for testing of the sophisticated electronics and avionics systems. The building was constructed with split faced and center scored CMU.
William Podolsky designed the Keenan Commerce Center with two buildings on this 16-acre site. The first phase of development entailed 90,000 SF of structure and site improvements. These structures included a 75,000 SF building for office/warehousing/distribution that is dock high and a 15,000 SF structure with the same determinants at grade level. The structures are tilt panel concrete exterior bearing walls with large span open bays to allow for maximum flexibility in office/warehousing/distribution functions. The floors are 6″ reinforced concrete to allow for added height in bulk storage.
