Constructible Models and Collaboration Tools Enabled Project Efficiency and Accuracy
When High Concrete Group was asked to help bring an 8547 sq m (92,000 sq h) office building at 1200 Intrepid Avenue to life, it was up for the challenge. Later, they were also rewarded for their work as this project received the 2016 Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award from the PCI Institute. Located at the Navy Yard's Corporate Center in Philadelphia, a master-planned development within the Navy Yard encompassing approximately 125,400 sq m (1.35 million sq h), the Intrepid building is constructed entirely of flat concrete planks. Each piece is set at an angle, so the composition gradually becomes a curving wall with mesmerizing optical effects that make the front wall appear as though it is falling to the ground like a row of dominos. Three sides of the structure are conventional flat walls, while the east facade has a variety of radii, ranging from just over 98 m (320 h) at the ground floor to just over 2,713 m (8,900 h) at the parapet of the roof.
