CBF TO INSTALL LARGE BEAMS AT BROCK ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER

CRANE TO PLACE CURVED STEEL BEAMS

AT 2:30 P.M. WEDESDAY, MARCH 5, 2014

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA. – The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) and Hourigan Construction crews will be installing large steel beams at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, as part of the ongoing construction of CBF’s Brock Environmental Center at Pleasure House Point in Virginia Beach. The large curved beams will support the roof of the center’s conference room and mark a key milestone in the construction of the building, which when completed next fall will be the greenest, most sustainable building in Virginia and among the greenest structures in the world.

The placement of the beams will make an excellent photo opportunity to provide an update on construction progress to the community. If you would like to join us, please contact Chuck Epes, 804/780-1392 or cepes@cbf.org.

When completed, the Brock Environmental Center will house CBF’s Hampton Roads staff and those of Lynnhaven River NOW, provide community meeting and training space, serve as home to CBF’s award-winning environmental education programs in Hampton Roads, and be a national model for sustainable building, conservation, and restoration. The center is designed by SmithGroupJJR; other project partners include Skanska and WPL Site Design.
