Firelogix Engineering, Ltd. served as a key member of the design build team for the flagship Navy Exchange at Bethesda, Maryland. The team was honored with a Merit award from the Design Build Institute.
The Walbridge/Brasfield & Gorrie Joint Venture teamed with CMH Architects to design and build the new Navy exchange (NEX) under a 26-month design-build contract. Carved into existing topography, the structure fits comfortably into the same confined space that held the former exchange while offering better accommodations and greater efficiency. The project involved building a temporary shopping center, demolishing a 20-year-old facility and constructing the new NEX and adjoining parking structure.
