The Center for the Intrepid is a private project funded by The Intrepid Fallen Hero Fund. It is located on Ft Sam Houston at BAMC. The project is design build with a suspended structure with an elliptical footprint. Along with the building pad, excavation was required for the indoor pool and road subgrades. As with other military projects, coordination was crucial due to the ongoing military activities and pedestrian traffic. The site is highly secure, requiring vehicle inspections and ID badges on a daily basis.

Demolition crews contributed first on this project. Demolition activities included asbestos abatement, mercury and lead paint removal and the demolition of an existing four story dormitory. Afterwards, site crews graded the site, provided and placed asphalt paving and constructed a building pad with four foot grade beams in a grid pattern. The grade beams for the foundation were designed in such close proximity with each other that the common approach to building pads and grade beams would not be productive. Instead, site crews excavated to the bottom of the grade beams and waited until after the grade beams were placed before backfilling. Crews used four bobcats and jumping jacks to backfill and compact the material since conveyor systems were too small for the pad.
