NEX Main Store Expansion/Renovation

Location: Norfolk, VA

This project consists of a 200,000 SF, multi-phased renovation and a 73,000 SF, two-story addition to the main Navy Exchange at Naval Station Norfolk. Newly designed and renovated spaces included the retail display and merchandise area and specialty shops such as a uniform shop, barbershop, optometrist, food court, administrative offices, and warehouse space. The design incorporates new finishes throughout the facility to brighten and enhance the shopping experience for Navy personnel and their dependents. The renovated exterior design provides a dynamic entry experience.

A companion project to the renovation/addition of the main Navy Exchange project was the renovation to the food court. In addition, the existing parking lot was refinished and restriped, adding 200 additional parking stalls to accommodate the increased shopping capacity. This project incorporates sustainable design features such as the installation of all new HVAC and electrical systems with substantial per-square-foot energy savings. The project construction consisted of 26 phases to minimize operational disruption.
