Verizon’s Advanced Remote Terminal Assembly Facility (VARTAC) is a 100,000 square foot office and manufacturing facility for the assembly of transmission modules within Verizon’s wireless communications network.
VARTAC was a Design-Build-Develop project constructed in two phases. Phase 1 of the project consisted of the fast track design and construction of the first 67,000 square feet – housing administrative, assembly and storage functions. Under Phase 2, an additional 33,000 square feet was completed. The building design incorporated a 15-ton bridge crane that runs the full length of the facility for the movement and transfer of modules onto flatbed trailers within the building envelope. The design was produced and coordinated on a fast-track schedule to meet a five month schedule.
MHA worked as part of the Thornton Tomasetti team in the project design management, site planning and architectural design services.
