Project Overview

This project included the construction of three new buildings – outfitting hall, blast and paint facility and boiler building – that allowed BIW to streamline output, reduce costs and increase overall shipbuilding efficiency. The massive 311-foot-long, 165-foot-wide and 110-foot-high outfitting hall includes two 200-ton bridge cranes and two Megadoors; the state-of-the-art two-cell blast and paint facility encompasses a building footprint of 200 feet by 196 feet; and the new boiler building consolidates the shipyard’s boiler operations.

More than 6,000 cubic yards of concrete were placed to complete the 42-inch-thick outfitting hall base slab. Installation of extensive deep foundation systems included auger-cast concrete and steel H-piles.
