This $12,074,971 project consisted of a 125 foot long x 121 foot high x 107 foot wide addition to the Building 546 Machine Shop at NAVSEA Naval Foundry and Propeller Center, used for the machining and manufacturing of Naval ship propellers.  This project was located on the Delaware River and required multiple bridge cranes, of which one was designed to move both inside the facility and outside over a barge dock for shipping finished product by sea.  The building required a custom made two part hangar door, which was both bi-parting at the bottom and outward pivoting at the top to allow the bridge crane and its’ load to pass outside and over the dock area.  The project required an upgrade of the entire electrical system and industrial ventilation systems and a new oil mist collection system.  The building was set on wood piles and heavy concrete pile caps throughout the building to support the massive foundations as well as the heavy-duty concrete floor slabs.  The structural frame was buttressed with structural steel as well as massive columns and long-span heavy steel.
