US Coast Guard - OPBAT Hangar
Great Inagua, The Bahamas
Construction Management of Florida, Inc. is the Prime Contractor of this design build Project.
The 18,807 sq. ft. Hangar is built to withstand 150 mph horizontal wind forces. The precast wall system has the durability and ease for construction. The roof system consists of a double slope structural steel frame with the ridge line running front to back along the center of the hangar.
The hangar's roof truss bottom chord will be stabilized to accommodate compression loads due to wind uplift. Roof uplift completely governs in the design of structure. The unique "H" pile foundation provides extreme resistance to horizontal, lateral and vertical uplift force wind load.All requirements were carefully reviewed and fulfilled.
Special requirements such as: 400 Hertz power, 28 volt DC power suppliers, high expansion foam fire suppression systems, overhead bridge crane, compression air systems, aircraft wash down system, elaborate communication, security and fire system low voltage wiring and device requirements, corrosion resistance protection, etc.
We are building this Hangar in a remote island of the Bahamas, Great Inagua and we have to import everything. The logistic, schedule and coordination of the project takes a lot of detail oriented work from preparing and ordering materials, to shipping coordination, to chartering flights to take the USCG to the progress meetings on the island. There is no skilled labor on the Island so we had to find our own skilled labor that was willing to go and work under poor conditions and able to get work permits from the State Department and the Bahamas.
The base is operational so we have had to coordinate the heavy work with the base and the Great Inagua Airport next door.
US Air Force - Replace Weathered or Damaged Structural Members
Patrick Air Force Base, Florida
Construction Management of Florida, Inc. furnished all materials, labor and equipment necessary to replace weathered or damaged structural members including rotted wood planks, wood supports, wood braces, or rusted metal bolts or brackets as required to maintain the docks in a safe and structurally sound condition in accordance with specifications and drawings.
During construction, when repairing the existing deck/roof pilings for the north dock, we found out that a structural failure will eventually occur. After confirming that there was no money in the budget we found a solution.
By using used piles that the owner had, and working with the dock subcontractor, we replaced the pilings at our own labor expense with no additional charge to the Government. We felt this was necessary to ensure the structural integrity.
Construction Management of Florida, Inc. finished the project with no delays and with full satisfaction of the owner for a job well done.
