Consolidated Maintenance Facility with Dynamometer Building
This task order consisted of 3 projects as follows:
Consolidated Maintenance Building: This new building consists of a building area of 73,367 SF with large and small maintenance and repair bays, clean rooms, various types of repair shops, tool rooms, fuel & electric repair, fuel parts test, wood shop, a supply warehouse, shop control offices, and administrative offices. The repair bays are equipped with overhead vehicle exhaust removal systems for 4-wheeled army vehicles including the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles, Humvees, and vehicles with Detroit and Cummins engines. The project included the demolition of 14 existing structures on the site.
Dynamometer Building, Oil & Paint Storage, and Open Storage Building: The Dynamometer Building consists of a 6,114 SF masonry building with a standing seam metal roof. The building has office space, two control rooms, and four test cells or dyno rooms used to test engines and transmissions after being rebuilt. Monorails are located in each test cell running from the test cell to the outside of the building to eliminate forklifts from having to enter the building. The mechanical system includes large engine cooling exhaust fans located in the test cells. Also included in this project are a 635 SF Oil and Paint Storage Building and an 8,999 SF Open Storage Building for shipping containers.
Renovation and Addition to Existing Consolidated Maintenance Facility (Building 1170): The project consisted of the renovation of an existing 46,869 SF maintenance facility to include interior spaces to satisfy new functional uses, a new machine shop, new tire repair shop, and a new tritium storage and repair rooms. The building addition consisted of two new maintenance bays (5,760 SF) with a built-up roof system supported by a vertically braced frame in one direction and a rigid moment frame in the other direction surrounded by masonry walls extending the full height of the building. The structure also was designed to support a 35-ton bridge crane with coverage over the entire building addition footprint. The repair bays are equipped with overhead vehicle exhaust removal systems for 4-wheeled army vehicles including the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles, Humvees, and vehicles with Detroit and Cummins engines.
Anti-terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) measures and sustainable design principles have been incorporated in all 3 projects. Supporting facilities included parking, concrete pavement, sidewalks, water, sewer, electrical service, fire alarm systems, storm drainage, erosion control measures, and information systems.
