Interesting facts about the structure that are personalized to this location
and building:

- Architects found that the same building built with masonry construction would have cost 25% greater than the ICF building because of the additional reinforcement requirements.

Expectations upon completion of ICF structure(s) that were sufficiently met include:
- Built in force protection required for all military buildings since September 11, 2001.

Unexpected benefits upon completion of the ICF structure(s) include:
- Ability to line warehouse walls with gypboard because it is fully supported by the concrete walls. The military representatives were very pleased with the speed of construction.
