Life, Health & Safety (LHS) B5900 Renovation and DLA Fuel Station

Bullisb5900

Life, Health & Safety (LHS) B5900 Renovation and DLA Fuel Station

Location: Joint Base San Antonio, Camp Bullis, TX
Client: US Army
Completion: 2017
Value: $3.3M

Highlights:

  • Design-Build
  • Renovate Life/Health/Safety (LHS) features of the building
  • Upgrade Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Fuel Station

Role in US National Defense

Camp Bullis Military Training Reservation is a US Army training camp used primarily as maneuvering grounds for US Army, Air Force, and Marine combat units. It is also a field training site for the various medical units stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center at nearby Fort Sam Houston.

Scope

Since the land was purchased in 1906 by the US government, it has been used as a maneuvers and training grounds for troops based at Fort Sam Houston. As operations at Camp Bullis expanded, the number of buildings increased and all aspects of the facilities were continually renovated to reflect advances in technology and troop safety, including the installation of Life, Health, and Safety (LHS) systems in the 1960s. To maintain their efficacy and compliance, Camp Bullis LHS systems are regularly assessed and renovated as needed. This contract awarded a CMS 8(a) joint venture the opportunity to renovate the LHS system of Building 5900, a community service facility on Base that houses a theater and dressing room.

The scope of this project also included renovation of the DLA Fuel Station, which required placing easements and installing wastewater lines, new water lines, new fire hydrants, a concrete-encased duct for electrical lines, new overhead and underground electrical lines, asphalt driveway approaches, curbs, and gutters.

Design-Build Recapitalize Deep Draft Berthing Wharf C “Charlie”-2

Design-Build Recapitalize Deep Draft Berthing Wharf C “Charlie”-2

Location: Naval Station, Mayport, FL
Client: US Navy
Completion: 2017
Value: $26.5M

Highlights:

  • Upgraded and restored Wharf C-2, which was deteriorated from age and corrosion
  • Increased Wharf C-2’s maximum load handling and overall functionality
  • Increased Wharf C-2’s safety standards for Navy personnel

Role in US National Defense

Naval Station (NS) Mayport is one of three major Navy installations in the Jacksonville, FL area. Its mission is to sustain and enhance warfighter readiness. The recapitalized Wharf Charlie-2 berths multiple ships for loading and unloading cargo (including ordnance) and Navy personnel.

Scope

The objective of this project was to perform subaqueous/subterranean construction and repairs to result in extending the life of Wharf C-2 by 50 years. Wharf C “Charlie”-2 is one of two primary carrier piers (C-1 and C-2), both of which serve specialized services and are critical to the defense mission that is carried out in the Mayport Basin at Mayport Naval Station, Jacksonville, FL. The project’s period of performance was delayed by almost two years by a post-award order to perform an Environmental Assessment (EA) in the interest of protecting marine life in the Mayport Basin. The objective of the assessment was to measure the degree of incidental disturbance to marine life when using a vibratory method to drive piles. Two species of marine mammals were singled out as at-risk. In May 2014, the Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration authorized an incidental harassment authorization (IHA) for a period of time during which the method could be utilized, which allowed the project to go forward under a strictly-enforced environmental directive.

Design-Bid-Build Waterfront Emergency Generators

Design-Bid-Build Waterfront Emergency Generators

Location:   Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, GA
Client:   US Navy
Completion:   2015
Value:
$15.9M

Highlights:

  • New construction of a ballistically hardened emergency generator building to minimize risks associated with natural disaster, blasts/ballistic attack, CBRN, EMP/HEMP
  • Weapons movement: During the movement of weapons the CMS crew was not allowed to be outdoors at the project site; CMS scheduled work around this factor so that work performed indoors would be performed during extended periods set aside for weapons movement


Role in US National Defense

Naval Submarine Base (NSB) Kings Bay, GA is the home port for US Navy Fleet ballistic missile nuclear submarines armed with Trident missile nuclear weapons. Its mission is to provide support to Fleet, Fighter, and Family.

Scope

This project consisted of the construction of a 7,535-SF ballistically-hardened emergency generator building to house and support two emergency backup generators, switchgear and control equipment. Included in the scope is an overhead bridge crane, external underground fuel storage, and utility and site improvements. The project also required climate-controlled space for all switchgear and generator controls and fire protection throughout. It includes a walled courtyard to house mechanical equipment such as, engine mufflers, heat exchangers, diesel engine intake air filter boxes and heat pumps. Just beyond the mechanical yard is the underground emergency fuel storage system. This area is made up of two underground fuel storage tanks, an underground containment tank, a truck fill area for offloading fuel and controls for the systems fueling and leak detection systems. Underground electrical feeders provide emergency power distribution through secure manholes and bullet-resistant aboveground structures to various facilities along the Waterfront Restricted Area in the event of a power outage. The site improvements include an asphalt access roadway, paved parking and storm water drainage features.

The new facility is an enclosed cast-in-place and precast concrete building with an EIFS finish. The main portion of the building is two stories with a one-story section having a walled-in area and the other side of the building having a removable wall in the event the generators would ever need to be removed/replaced. The ballistic screen wall is constructed of concrete masonry units with a concrete wall cap and ballistically rated mechanical gates. The main two-story section houses the two generators, while the smaller one-story section is the control room, housing the switchgear. It includes a bathroom. Interior finishes for the generator room includes painting concrete walls and ceilings, and sealing the concrete floor. The control room and bathroom are painted drywall with VCT flooring.

The site for the facility is raised approximately 7′ with structural fill, and the building foundations are spread footer style reinforced concrete over prepared subgrade. The screen wall foundations are CMU. The floors are concrete slab-on-grade, with the generator room having a built-in trench drain running around the raised generator pads.

The finished grade in the outside mechanical yard is aggregate base. New underground utility services include water, sanitary sewer with force main and lift station, fire supply water line and electrical and communications lines.
