The Team Old Veteran Construction, Inc. (51% LEAD JV Partner) & Pacific Construction, Services, Inc. (49% partner) Joint Venture, Designer of record Wight & Co. Architects and Hill Mechanical Group (which would maintain the building for 5 years) procured to deliver a Design / Build Silver LEED Rated, 65,000 square foot, 2-story building and maintain for 5 years after completion and occupancy.
Prior to the start, existing Drill Halls were evaluated for performance and maintenance to insure that this project would durable and low maintenance. Groundbreaking took place on a site that was more than 60% open and completely vegetated. It should be noted that the new facility is located on the Recruit Training Center of the base and having to complete the total demolition of a Laundry Facility, logistics and safety were a top priority. The Project Team successfully delivered and achieved a LEED GOLD 2.2 Rating. The Drill Hall facility is a 2-story, approx. 65,000 SF masonry building with a (Butler) standing seam metal roof. The building included a new fire protection / sprinkler system, fire alarm / mass notification system, Direct Digital Control (DDC) Temperature Controls and our scope of work included site development, paving, new site utilities, sanitary sewer lines, fiber optics and a storm water collection system around the building. This MULTI-FUNCTIONAL BUILDING provides space for Classrooms, Training, Drill Assessments, Organized Sporting Events, Team Building Scenarios, and Administrative Offices. The building is also used for Graduation Ceremonies and high profile social events. Drill Hall constructed to comply with DoD Antiterrorism (ATFP) Standards.
During Design and Construction a great amount of consideration was given to the durability and future maintenance of the building which would occur through the end of 2012. To date the building construction inclusive of all mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems have far exceeded the team and clients expectations.
