No, there are no elevators.

We are building something a little different than normal. It is a 2 story structure that is about 75'x65'. The bottom half of the building is filled block that has #6 rebar on 8" centers throughout (that means it is pretty damn sturdy). The bottom level is split pretty much in half, with one side having a few rooms that are pretty typical for office construction. There is another filled wall that bisects the floor.
The other side of the wall will be left with a compacted earth floor graded to drain towards a sump box, with an earth berm sloping up the walls at a 1:1 slope to a height of 8'. The ceiling is only 9' up. There is one big entrance into this room from the "office" area.
The second floor is split by a large chase, and is just 2 big rooms.
Now the strangest part is that the building was deliberately laid out to be aligned to north.
Before anyone asks, there will be no pictures of the building. Cameras are forbidden, and all sites employ "escorts" who openly watch what we do. I will not even try it.
Anyone care to venture a guess as to what the building could be used for?
