- Secure, hardened structure with progressive collapse system
- Integrated project design using Tekla Structures
This office building is owned and operated by Ryan Companies and leased to the U.S. General Services Administration as the FBI’s regional headquarters in Phoenix. The campus consists of several structures including a 5-story office tower, a visitors screening facility, an annex building, and a two-story parking structure totaling over 300,000 square feet. The central office tower and support buildings are subject to both modern blast design and progressive collapse design criteria as prescribed by the security programs of the General Services Administration. The building’s primary structural frame is composite metal decking with concrete topping and braced steel frames. Walls are cast-in-place concrete tilt panels. The project was designed using Revit modeling software to interact three-dimensionally. Additionally, MBJ and IPD partner and steel detailer LTC, Inc. used Tekla Structures to optimize the structural steel shop drawing creation and submittal process which assisted in a speedy steel procurement timeline.
