On July 31, 2019, NV5’s Deputy Chief Building Official and onsite inspector, Bruce Boyer, and Senior Vice President for Energy and Chief Building Official, Kevin Wedman participated in the “structural steel topping out ceremony” in which the final piece of structural steel was placed on the 17 story General Administration Facility (GAF). This is an exciting milestone for the project as it nears 50% completion. This age-old tradition gives the construction teams and project stakeholders an opportunity to celebrate their progress and success.
“We are excited to be part of this project and look forward to delivering a successful, safe, and code compliant administration building for the Navy to use for many years,” said Bruce Boyer, Deputy Chief Building Official.
