Fort Lewis Barracks

Project Name: Fort Lewis Barracks
Project Location: JBLM, WA

New barracks at Fort Lewis were specified with bearings walls and framing by other. AUE provided full design of the bearing walls, floor and roof framing in light gauge framing for this 3-story building used to house soldiers. Several unique requirements were incorporated by AUE’s design including requirements for blast loading in specified areas as well as requirements to meet Minimum Anti-Terrorism Standards for Buildings (UFC 4-010-01) and Design of Buildings to Resist Progressive Collapse (UFC 4-023-03 25). Our final product involved a complete set of building shop drawings for the construction of the primary structure utilizing shop built wall panels.
