This event will be a slide presentation and talk with accompanying time-lapse construction video, questions, and comments. Stephen Wakeman, AIA & Derrick Steltzer, AIA of JACOBS will lead the presentation in person of one of their most recent award-winning modular buildings the Deployable Air Traffic Control Facility constructed out of shipping containers to illustrate “Shipping Container Architecture”. The Deployable Air Traffic Control Facility is used by the United States Federal Aviation Administration to temporarily replace existing Airport Traffic Control Towers closed due to renovations or because of an unexpected closure due to natural or unforeseen causes. The tower can be shipped anywhere in the world and was initially designed to respond to the 2010 earthquake that ravaged Port au Prince, Haiti.
Steve and Derrick will be talking about their experience in modular assembly using shipping containers and will focus on topics such as IBC, NFPA code compliance, Means of construction using shipping containers, Anatomy of shipping containers, Drawing requirements for modular shipping container assembly, Wind and seismic provisions, Fire rating and Transportation. The design team is currently working on Tower Design Version 2.
