Turner Construction Company is pleased to announce that a design-build team of Turner and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) has been selected to deliver the latest addition to the campus of the United States Naval Academy: the Center for Cyber Security Studies.
The $114 million Center is a 206,400-square-foot academic building, dedicated to the education of midshipmen in all areas of cyber warfare, and will include classrooms and lecture halls, teaching and research laboratories, a research and testing tank to support the engineering and weapons laboratories, an observatory, offices, and multi-purpose collaborative space for students and faculty. Situated between Nimitz Library and Rickover Hall, the Center will be surrounded by elevated hardscape terraces continuous with those of the adjacent buildings.
“We are honored to be selected by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Washington, and we are excited to partner with them and SOM and to share in the mission of the United States Naval Academy,” said Chris Jahrling, vice president and general manager of Turner’s Federal Services Group. He continued, “We look forward to bringing our experience building premier educational and research facilities for the government to this unique project.”
With design beginning immediately, construction on the Center for Cyber Security Studies is scheduled to begin in late 2016. Completion is anticipated in the third quarter of 2019.
