The renovation of the existing mechanical spaces to accommodate the new systems required significant asbestos and lead paint abatement, new electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems and other modifications necessary to accommodate the new equipment. Furthermore, exterior underground work required significant site concrete, pavement, and landscaping to return disturbed areas to their prior condition. The majority of the buildings were classified as historically significant, requiring coordination with the base historical reviewers, Title II construction manager, and the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO).
Two of the buildings required construction of a structure to house the new boilers, including foundation and masonry block work with embedded utilities, pre-engineered metal building erection, fire suppression, individual boilers, and building finishes.
The scope of the project also included the demolition of the CHP, a 6 story, 80 feet tall structure. Prior to demolition, complete lead and asbestos abatement was necessary.
