Gaines Group Architects

Location: Portsmouth, VA

Contractor: Nielsen Builders


A fusion of functionality and aesthetically pleasing design, the Interchange Portsmouth 200K building is a 200,000 SF $9.1 million multi-use concrete warehouse facility.  The structural shell is constructed with 40’ tall tilt-up concrete wall panels based on concrete foundations and a slab-on-grade concrete floor system.  The roof structure combines steel columns and joists with metal decking and an EPDM fully adhered roof.  Other building features include storefront entrances, 29 overhead doors and dock levelers. The architectural stepped paint scheme breaks up the building’s vast 600-foot front elevation length and brings a new look to the Elmhurst Lane business area. The building provides for office space in the front of the building and loading dock areas at the rear.  The design of the building will allow for multiple tenants under one roof.
