TRW UAV Flight and Logistics Center

William Podolsky designed theĀ 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.
