- Administrative Facility Partial Renovation
As part of the base’s conversion from a fighter wing to an intelligence wing, this facility was renovated to add 3,200 square feet of sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) space.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver design-bid-build project provided extensive renovation, upgrade and an addition to Building 165 and expanded existing administrative spaces in Building 162. Building 165 encompasses 25,165 square feet and now includes a 2,500-square-foot addition and houses the 102nd Intelligence Wing Air Operations Squadron and Air Intelligence Squadron. Building 162 is 23,090 square feet and serves as the Communications Support Facility for the Wing. It included the renovation of 10,640 square feet to provide new administrative space.
All exterior doors and windows in Building 165 were removed and replaced, including the glass storefront entry. Auditorium seating; interior wall, floor and ceiling finishes; and roofing on both buildings were also removed and replaced. Elements that were removed, reconditioned and reinstalled included selected millwork, lockers, and toilet partitions.
Approximately 70% of the existing space in Building 165 was demolished, reconfigured and remodeled to support new functional requirements. Specialized spaces including the existing auditorium, server room, building equipment rooms, and toilets were retained but received new wall, floor and ceiling finishes. New spaces included a 3,200 SF ICD 705-compliant operations area on raised computer flooring, private offices, open office work areas, conference rooms, training areas, break room, toilets and showers, locker rooms and building equipment space. The 2,500-square-foot addition provides unsecured operational space. Upgrades to Building 162 included the minor removal of existing interior walls and the construction and renovation of new offices and storage areas.
The existing windows and storefront entrance on Building 165 were removed and replaced to comply with the anti-terrorism/force protection code (UFC 4-010-01). Additional structural tube steel was installed to resist associated blast loads and all overhead items such as fan coil units were braced laterally.
The existing mechanical and HVAC systems in Building 165 were demolished and replaced with a new air-cooled variable refrigerant flow system that included two 30-ton condensing units; ceiling-mounted fan coil units supplied with ventilation air by a dedicated outdoor air handling unit that allows for heat recovery; all supply and return ductwork; and control system connected to the base’s existing Energy Control and Management System. HVAC upgrades in Building 162 included new fan coil units and associated ductwork. All plumbing fixtures in both buildings were replaced with new water efficient fixtures.
For electrical systems, all existing panelboards, feeders, branch circuits and lighting in Building 165 and renovated areas of Building 162 were removed and replaced. Interior voice and data communication system services for new and renovated rooms are supported by the existing equipment located in existing server room. Other systems that were removed and replaced or upgraded and expanded included public address, mass notification, CATV and IDS.
A new automatic sprinkler system was provided throughout Building 165 in accordance with UFC 3-600-01. System upgrades in Building 162 included the demolition of the existing preaction system in the renovated spaces and the installation of a new wet pipe sprinkler system. The existing fire alarm system in Building 165 was removed and replaced with a new non-addressable system that included smoke detectors, duct smoke detectors and pull stations. Fire alarm devices in system in Building 162 were replace only as impacted by new work.
Our team also conducted the design charrette and developed the charrette report to validate project scope and confirm compliance with the program. Design efforts included delivery of the concept and final design and preparation of final construction bid documents. Other services included topographic surveys, geotechnical investigations, preparing cost estimates and providing construction support services.
