*Type of Construction: The overall structure was designed for Guam’s unique locale requirements which require the need for structures to sustain typhoon strength winds in excess of 175 mph and the seismic 4 requirements for potentially severe earthquake events. Constructed on granular fill, the continuous spread footings foundations support 10” thick tilt-up precast walls. The 6” ground slabs were placed to near “super-flat” standards. The roof steel joist open web structure is supported by steel columns and beams and the metal decking is topped with a 5” structural concrete topping w/ urethane roofing membrane. The building is finished with integral color EFS.
