A Design/Build project, the H/MC-130 Fuel Cell Maintenance Facility is a Hangar with 31,942 square feet that will accommodate a C-130 or two CV22 airplanes. The Hanger space has a very high bay with highly sophisticated mechanical and electrical systems, and also has an expansion foam system in the Hangar bay. This facility also includes offices, conference room, break room, CTK room, communication room, fire protection equipment room, toilet/locker/shower rooms, janitor room, boiler room and mechanical/electrical rooms. This facility includes a fall protection system and breathing air drops to the aircraft fuel cells. This facility is LEED Silver accredited. Parking and landscaping were also provided. This project also includes an Armament Shop with 10,760 square feet and an addition to existing Corrosion Control Facility with 3,763 square feet.
The Crash Fire Rescue Station involved site development and complete A-E design and construction services for a 3,085-square-meter building featuring emergency team housing, training and physical fitness facilities, food preparation and dining facilities, emergency vehicle and apparatus maintenance and support bays; and an observation room designed to provide an unobstructed view of the runway.
The Flight Simulation Facility at Kirtland Air Force base is a 75,000 SF, two-story Design/Build project that includes a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF), three associated SCIF and non-SCIF security systems, state-of-the-art training and presentation facilities, computer supported flight simulation facilities, Uninterruptible Power System (UPS) support systems, single and multi-occupant office spaces, Conference rooms, and a variable air volume handling systems.
The Telescope Atmosphere Compensation Laboratory is a two-story, steel frame building designed to enhance and expand the research capabilities of the Starfire Optical Range. The design provides for communications infrastructure and Secure Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) features, incorporates sound and vibration control features, and meets clean room standards for refinishing of telescope mirrors. The TAC Lab Facility demonstrates large complicated design and build capabilities.
Work included site work, installation of three 10,000 barrel tanks, tank foundations, new dike containment walls, new pumping and filtration systems and pipeline inbound filtration equipment. Truck off loading stations, refueler-loading positions, and a new four position remote loading rack. Approximately one mile of 12-inch dedicated fuel line from the storage facility to the new load racks. Line included tunneling under existing runways. Project also included a new Fueling and Operations Building, providing administrative offices, maintenance bays for refuelers and other ground service equipment. The building included concrete masonry and steel construction with a standing seam metal roof system, exterior finish systems, all finishes with fueling system controls and terminal management system.
