Pantex planned the new Component Evaluation Facility (CEF) to meet criteria for withstanding mixed categories of various intensities of natural phenomena hazards (NPH), and accidental, and intentional and unintentional loads.  Working for Washington Group International (WGI), SGH provided analyses to determine that the structure met the criteria.  At the time of this project, WGI was under subcontract to BWXT Pantex, who managed and operated the Pantex Plant for the Department of Energy and the National Nuclear Security Administration.
