approximately 25.5 meters (85 feet) deep and that the design conditions are as found in Norfolk,
VA. The figure presents the pounds per square foot of structural steel required to construct a
facility of roughly 7150 m2 (77000 ft2) total area. The pounds of steel per square area values are
an average including both the hangar (OH) area and the office and shop (O1/O2) areas. It is
assumed that the ratio between OH and O1/O2 areas remains relatively constant in all Type I
facilities.
