Repair and Convert Command Support Center Buildings

Fort Gordon, GA

$16.2 M | Excellent CPARS

This project included the repair and repurpose of Building 35200 (52,500 SF), Building 35201 (3,877 SF), Building 35202 (3,748 SF), and Building 35203 (10,600 SF) from an Army and Air Force Exchange Services (AAFES) retail store to administrative spaces for a variety of installation activities. The Clement Group removed and replaced existing failed/failing building systems: roof, interior and exterior walls, exterior doors, windows, canopies, interior finishes, finished floors, ceilings, plumbing, HVAC, HVAC controls, electrical system, communication system, fire detection and alarm, fire suppression system, building information systems, raised access flooring, and permanent walls.

All final finishes complied with the prescribed Ft. Gordon “Design Guide.” The final facility had low maintenance metal roofing, simple sod landscaping, and modular interior work. The modular interior work makes the facility well-suited for any future changes needed without major reworking of electrical and mechanical systems.

Renovate Building 229 N

Robins AFB, GA

$6.6 M | Above Average CCASS

This project was a design-build renovation of the first and second-floors of a high-security occupied Data Center in Building 229N. Inside the data center, we constructed four labs on the second floor per the scope of work and common spaces (corridors, toilet rooms, break room, security office, and check-in window). Work included demolition, doors and hardware, access flooring, drywall and framing, fire protection systems, HVAC, electrical, intrusion detection system, and communications installation. The project was constructed in accordance with Joint Air Force-Army-Navy 6/9 requirements. All materials selected for the final facility were selected for their maintenance-free classification. Notable equipment installed during the project included a 400-Hz power system to mimic the power systems aboard aircraft. This allows personnel to perform their work for the aircraft components. The user is a software maintenance group that code, test, and load software into the USAF F-15 fighter jets. The new 400-Hz power system allowed them to test radar and weapons systems software in the labs on the 2nd floor.

During the project, we worked with the AFB to comply with the required security measures typical of work on an active AFB. Specific to this project, no cell phones or technology that transmitted were allowed inside the building to ensure the data center remained secure. We also had escorts with us at all times entering and exiting the work site and at any time that we had to access the occupied portions of the facility.

TEMF

Fort Leavenworth, KS

$6.4 M | Outstanding CCASS

This was a design-build task order for one small Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility (TEMF) of approximately 17,000 SF. The facility’s purpose is to maintain and repair vehicles, and the space includes equipment and parts storage, administrative facilities, and a covered hardstand. The building consists of two main areas: Repair Bays (consisting of Repair Areas and Maintenance Areas) and the Core Area (consisting of Administration and Training Areas). ATFP was incorporated into the final design of the facility.

The schedule for construction pushed the temperature sensitive concrete pours into the extreme cold months for the region. Therefore, the construction sequence were such that the footings were poured, the building erected, then the slab on grade. This allowed the slab on grade to be in a controlled environment (the structure was built over it and the space was heated). The project completed four months ahead of schedule.

108th ADA Brigade Headquarters

Fort Bragg, NC

$8.7 M | Outstanding CCASS

The design-build MATOC task order for the 108th ADA Brigade Headquarters at Ft. Bragg, NC was for a new 40,000 SF office/training facility designed to fit in an existing brigade complex and was the last building constructed within the complex. The facility is a two-story structural steel frame with light gauge metal trusses and studs for exterior framing and interior walls. The exterior consists of brick, five feet above slab on grade with EIFS above the brick. The roof is architectural shingles on a wood deck attached to metal decking. The exterior site includes concrete paved parking for secured parking. Covered canopies were constructed at personnel doors. The SCIF within the facility area required independent/isolated HVAC and electrical systems, including generator backup power. The final facility was LEED Silver certifiable.

Given the location requirements, it was a tight project site around the existing facilities and soldier’s center as the job site was centered between two other battalion-sized Head Quarters, a parking lot, and an access road. While on the project, we constantly communicated and coordinated with other general contractors about their projects (completing the parking lot and the main road to the site) to complete our project as smoothly as possible.

BCT Complex Increments 3 & 4

Fort Lewis, WA

$15.6 M | Above Average CCASS

This project consisted of the design and construction of two medium Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facilities (TEMFs) at Fort Lewis, WA. The primary objective of these facilities was to maintain and repair vehicles, provide equipment and parts storage, administrative facilities, organizational parking, and hardstand. Total building square footage between the two TEMFs was over 60,000 SF, and site work included over 15 acres of overall development. Each TEMF accommodated a 10-ton bridge crane each and 305 and 381 vehicles respectively.Site work included extensive on-site demolition of three WWII-era buildings, utilities, electric service, fire protection and alarm systems, LEED requirements, and anti-terrorism and force protection measures in compliance with UFC 4-010-01 requirements.

Design implemented a fast-track delivery method and achieved LEED Silver. Reduction in energy usage, improved wall and roof insulation, and construction waste management were key factors in meeting the LEED Silver requirement. Design complied with the COS TEMF guide and the Ft.Lewis “Base Design Guide” as well. Building Information Modeling (BIM) was also implemented by the design firm to provide a more detailed and accurate design.
