Designing and Building to Withstand the Elements
CMS’s ongoing work at Andersen AFB on Guam requires that we successfully design and build new facilities, renovations, and upgrades to withstand the extreme weather events that are typical to the island of Guam. Our reinforced concrete techniques, concrete-topped roofs, durable coatings, and other weather-resistant and wind-protective design elements ensure durability under typhoon-strength winds, rainy seasons and flooding, and high seismic activity in the region.
This project included the design and construction of new 24,913-SF facility for the maintenance and repair of combat support vehicles. The interior includes administrative offices, a multi-purpose bay, drive-thru bay, tire repair bay, and paint booth bay. Design and construction included a concrete-topped roof (for stability), paving, a fire alarm/suppression system, a mass notification system, a mechanical ventilation system to maintain indoor air quality, and a separate exhaust system for vehicle exhaust removal.
