Noteworthy Construction Elements:

The site is situated just Eastside of Charlotte off of W.T. Harris Blvd. This site was an aircraft maintenance and training facility since WWII and has numerous existing structures that will be demolished that will need asbestos abatement. This is an Energy Star 2.0 project and must achieve a blower door test at 5.0 Air Changes per Hour. The site is a Brownfield property with existing contaminates such as fuel storage that will require the installation of a Vapor Mitigation System under slab along with powered vents in combination with the radon system.
