Officer Training Command Quarters
Location: Newport, RI
Client: Absher Construction Company
Military projects often require contractors to address a number of out-of-the-ordinary specifications, and the new 116-module Officer Training Command Quarters at Naval Station Newport was no exception.
Not only did the project bring together several disparate players — the Navy, Absher Construction, Tetra Tech, and American Direct, among them — but it also required construction to begin while the design phase was still in process.
American Direct worked hand-in-hand with the client and designer to help inform decisions about the safest, most cost-effective solutions for the 1,700 openings in the 120,000 square foot facility.
The result was a facility with built-to-last installations that also qualified for LEED Gold certifications.
