Benton Johnson Contributes to Structure Magazine on Deployable, Modular Building

Modular, rapidly erectable, and deployable structures are critical for disaster relief, military operations, and the accelerated construction of bridges and buildings. Through various innovative means and methods, permanent or temporary structures can be rapidly constructed in challenging environments, such as rural and austere regions where access to construction equipment is difficult or in heavily congested urban locations where construction time is severely limited


ERDC-CERL worked with structural engineers from Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) to optimize the building structure following best practices and current code requirements for concrete structures, while ERDC-CERL provided expertise on AC, performed validation testing, and led the building construction.
