Role in US National Defense

The Trident Refit Facility is part of a Naval operation that maintains and repairs the US Navy’s fleet of Trident submarines, which travel the globe on reconnaissance and other defense missions. In order to remain in operation, the facility must pass annual certification testing for all of its functions. The repairs, testing, and mechanical refurbishing CMS performed under this contract enabled the facility to pass its annual certification and continue its service to US national security without interruption.

Scope

Design and construction of replacements and repairs to TRF dry dock including pump motors, pumps, check valves, flow meters, actuators, HVAC equipment, control panel annunciators, and trench grating. Also, included repairs to damaged concrete and replacement of concrete coating in the basin, flooding conduits, and wet wells.

Completion:   2012
Value: $2.7M
Highlights:

  • Received letter of commendation, and Outstanding and Exceptional performance ratings from the client.

Efficiency Upgrades

The CMS project team incorporated a number of sustainable features to minimize the energy consumption of the facility, conserve resources, minimize adverse effects on the environment, and improve occupant productivity, health, and comfort. These features included:

  • High efficiency boilers
  • Direct digital controls
  • HVAC re-zoning
  • Energy efficient interior lighting fixtures
  • Water-saving plumbing fixtures

Scope

CMS replaced outdated boiler with three energy-saving, high efficiency boilers. Work also included repairs to the electrical distribution, lighting, and fire detection systems; installation of additional power and communications wiring; and renovations to interior finishes. The project also included lead abatement, removal of asbestos containing material, and removal of equipment containing mercury and PCBs.

Wade Utility Plant Boiler No. 7 Infrastructure Preparation

Location: Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN
Client: Purdue University
Completion:   2011
Value: $1.1M
Highlights:

  • Required complex scheduling and coordination while maintaining critical operations on campus
  • Earned an Exceptional performance rating from client.

Coordination with Multiple Contractors

CMS was required to prepare a mechanical infrastructure to accept equipment from a separate contractor. After flagging possible areas of incompatibility in the RFP, CMS contacted the equipment provider and worked closely with them in order to provide a perfect match between the infrastructure we built and the equipment they installed.

Scope

This project consisted of furnishing, installing and placing in successful operation a new steam generating facility infrastructure in which new steam equipment would be provided to generate and dispense steam throughout the University campus. CMS was contracted to provide a full and complete infrastructure to accept the 200,000 lbs/hr natural gas fired package boiler, and also to fabricate piping to fit the new system.

Location:  US Air Force Academy, CO
Client: US Air Force
Completion:   2008
Value: $2M
Highlights:

  • Completed one month ahead of schedule.
  • Earned an Outstanding performance rating from client.

Open Trench Pipe Replacement

CMS fabricated, transported installed over 6,000 LF of piping to serve the US Air Force Academy in Colorado. With the demolition of the existing piping system and replacement with new hydronic piping, extensive excavation was required in addition to coordinating the removal of the old and delivery/installation of the new. Re-routing was required to enhance performance from the original layout.

Scope

This project was an open-trench installation of 6,320 LF of 16-inch diameter prefabricated hydronic pipe. It included the installation of two new high temperature hot water (HTHW) circulation pumps with digital controls, three 10’ x 10’ precast HTHW valve vaults, and 600 LF of welded 6-inch steel pipe for all interior HTHW requirements. More than 3,000 LF of asbestos contaminated pipe was abated both above and below ground.
