Kongsberg is a three-story office building located just over the line in St. Charles Parish.
This 82,980 square foot building is situated in James Business park, but is a stand-alone building. Woodward overcame several utility congestion issues at the project site. The building is constructed of load-bearing tilt-up wall panels and steel framing.
Woodward worked in close coordination with the owner, Kongsberg Maritime, Inc., to achieve their vision of a “working” building. The owner had specific program requirements (enclosed and open-plan offices, a “command center”, training areas, meeting rooms, employee amenities, shipping/receiving and truck dock) and Woodward’s Design and Operations teams were able to find the best way to meet those requirements within the project budget and schedule constraints. Woodward Engineering Group performed the structural design and Caserta Architects was the architect on the project.
