The 1,500,000 SF, 5 building mixed-use campus employs nearly 2,500 workers and manufactures non-nuclear mechanical, electronic and engineered materials for a variety of national defense systems.

In direct communication with Centerpoint, GDS served as the Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering designer of record for the 300,000SF Building 1 and 98,000 Building 3 as well as completing MEP design for part of Building 4. The buildings contain data center space, office space, conference centers, food service, a fitness center, training rooms and confidential areas.
