This project structurally repairs and modernizes the former Naval Shipways (Building 178), a building on the National Register of Historic Places, to create a consolidated state-of-the-art Shipyard industrial material handling facility supporting optimized flow of critical submarine components during Ship overhaul evolutions; increasing efficiency while decreasing waste, and improving ship operational availability.

The design of the project will minimize adverse effects on Building 178 and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Historic District. In addition to an integrated solar transpired collector system that will offset up to 16,000 therms of fossil fuel heat per year, high efficiency mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems will work to support the LEED Core & Shell certification for this 162,654 square foot facility.
