    Description

    As of December 31, 2000, there were 603 buildings at Naval Station (NAVSTA) Norfolk with a combined floor area of nearly 17.3 million ft2. In one-third of these buildings, structural wood products were used in one or more major structural building applications, utilizing an estimated 11.6 million board feet of lumber, 0.4 million ft2 (3/8-in. basis) of structural panels, and 0.1 million ft2 (3/8-in. basis) of fiberboard. Wood buildings, on average, were about 40% smaller than their nonwood counterparts. They were also older. Half of all the buildings and three-fourths of all wood buildings pre-date 1950. The role of wood has greatly diminished at NAVSTA Norfolk over the past 50 years.
