People: Architect, Lloyd W. Goldrick, Albuquerque; general contractor, Dura Bilt Products, Albuquerque; roofing contractor, Mud Brothers, Albuquerque; erector, Commercial Steel Systems, Phoenix.
Products: The Long Bay System from Metallic Building Co. in Houston was used for the framing. Reynobond ACM panels from Alcoa Architectural Products in Eastman, Ga., and curtainwall and storefront glazing systems manufactured by Kawneer in Norcross, Ga., were also used in the project.
Fine points: The Washington, D.C.–based U.S. General Services Administration had specific requirements for wide interior spans utilizing an open web joist system. In addition, the GSA had specific square-footage requirements. The biggest challenge was ensuring that the final floor plan would match GSA’s specific square-footage requirements for certain offices and workspaces.
