Fort Belvoir Commissary Facility

Project Overview

For the Fort Belvoir Commissary Project, The Shockey Precast Group produced 269 pieces of architectural precast, including 145 precast walls with thin-brick facade and 124 arched pieces of architectural precast with thin-brick facade. Due to the complexity of the project and the potential issues associated with the erection sequences, Shockey utilized TEKLA 3D modeling to guide precast production, establish precast erection sequence, and coordinate with precast erection subcontractor E.E. Marr, Inc., who handled erection of the entrance and exit vestibule components. Although the project was not without its bumps in the road, the use of TEKLA contributed to greater collaboration among Shockey Precast’s Engineering team and Field Services, as well as with other trades and subcontractors, and created a project flow that was remarkably smooth and successful for the complexity of the project.

"The precast concrete design was able to meet the stringent performance requirements of the structure while providing an aesthetically pleasing, sustainable final product at an affordable price point."

"Metromont’s team embraced our idea and got their whole team on board. It’s one thing for sales managers to want to make architects happy, but to have the plant manager, the finishing crew foreman and engineers fully engaged is something else. Metromont was extremely cooperative – the project was a win-win for everyone.”
