Grumman Administrative & Technical Facilities

One of the most outstanding examples of how W & J Construction performs is this fast track project for Grumman.  Construction proceeded in stages as the design was produced, and was completed in 12 months, including front-end design and tail-end tenant fit up.

Used by Grumman in the design and development of the “Joint Stars” Battlefield Reconnaissance/Surveillance System, this  four-story 190,000 square foot building is constructed of prefabricated architectural concrete wall panels attached to the structural steel framing.

The interior of the building features offices, cafeteria, laboratories, over 100,000 square feet of computer access flooring, and anechoic chambers containing a one-ton bridge crane.  The roof top penthouse supports a radome enclosure, and the fourth level is completely contained with special radio frequency shielding.

W & J performed 30 percent of the project work using their own manpower in the areas of foundations, concrete, metal studs, drywall, general carpentry, and painting.
