Mexico's C5 systems serve to manage, evaluate, maintain, coordinate, organize and oversee communications, computer, control and command networks. They additionally coordinate and oversee specific plan, program and project implementations that are to be carried out by law for public security in the various states.
This requires a secured structure. The specific challenge for the C5 project in Estado de Mexico State was complete execution, from design to construction phases, in a record-breaking nine-month timeframe over an existing and abandoned steel-framed structure. There also needed to be a guarantee that equipment, furnishings and intelligence systems would be completely installed and the structure be fully functioning by one month after project completion.
The system chosen was tilt-up, lending the structure excellent aesthetic and functional properties. The tilt-up system was chosen primarily because of concrete's bullet resistance, and secondly for the speed with which panels can be constructed.
