AIA Hard Hat Tour: Fusion@Neon

October 4, 2023

Rounding out our September, SMF team members joined the American Institute of Architects Hampton Roads chapter for an exciting hard hat tour of the progress on Fusion@NEON.

This 5-story, 250+ unit apartment building and accompanying pool will be a stylish standout in Norfolk's Neon District. Amenities will include a 24-hour fitness facility with yoga and Peloton studios, rooftop terrace, billiards room, and swimming pool. It will be located  a block from Granby Street and steps away from the Chrysler Museum of Art and d'Art Center.

This project features Diversakore, a new system of combining steel and concrete that yields more usable space with less weight, waste, labor, time, and cost.  Click through photos taken by Mary Waisanen, Structural Engineering Technician, to see how it has been implemented in this job.
