Fleet Facility 30% Completed

March 02, 1986

Construction of the Fleet Computer Programming Facility at the Fleet Combat Training Center on Point Loma is scheduled to be completed by December.

C. E. Wylie was awarded the $9.6-million building contract by the U. S. Navy, and Alan Boyer and Chris Wszolek are project co-managers.

Designed by the Lane Architectural Group, the building is shaped in a sweeping semicircle and is located on a high bluff overlooking the ocean. The convex side of the structure faces west; the concave side will enclose a landscaped courtyard with flower beds and a moat.

The 84,000-square-foot, three-story structure is being built to Navy specifications with underground utility systems and a concrete caisson foundation, as well as structural steel framing and concrete walls. Capt. William Frazier is officer in charge of construction.

The interior will contain a 100-seat auditorium, classrooms, administrative offices and bays for 370 computer programmers. The top two levels will have 480-foot corridors, more than 1 1/2 times the length of a football field.
