BLDG 101 Renovations


Award Date: 09/30/2012                     

Completion Date: 05/14/2013

Located in a remote location, this complex and fast-track Design-Build project required substantial architectural, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, telecommunications and intruder detection systems (IDS) renovations to support the operational and security requirements for our government client. The Syncon Design-Build (DB) team was able to support the construction methods that were in strict accordance with high-security design standards to renovate an existing space (5,000 SQFT) to fully operational facility

Select demolition cleared the space of existing flooring, mechanical, electrical and IDS (coordinated with NAVSEA). Wall partitions and numerous security door assemblies were upgraded. The HVAC and associated plumbing systems were redesigned and installed with redundant and sustainable Computer Room Air Conditioning (CRAC) systems to support the load requirements of the new server systems, Power Management Modules (PMM), new security detection systems and functional requirements of the new operations center. Additional mechanical and electrical infrastructure was installed beneath the new Raised Access Flooring (RAF), and life safety systems along with exterior Lightning Protection Systems (LPS) were also upgraded in coordination with DoD and Other Government Agency requirements.

Per DoD security guidelines, all operational spaces received third party testing resulting in government accreditation on the first certification attempt. Upon completion the client stated:

P-500 Pier 11 Power Upgrades

Client: Norfolk Naval Base, NAVFAC  

Award Date: 06/20/2014               

Completion Date: 05/24/2018

P-500 is a critical project indirect support of the FORD class aircraft carrier and brought approximately 3X higher electrical power rating to the double decker Pier 11. It was a Design Build project that incorporated multiple disciplines to design and construct in a highly congested and operational area. This was the “Proto-Type” design for the future areas that will support the ship worldwide and require a high level of collaboration with the NAVFAC design team and end user.  The project included installing large steel booms to the double decker pier that would carry the ship to shore power cables and many structural improvements. A large percentage of the work was performed underneath the pier from small boats with zero safety issues.

From the NAVFAC Construction Manager:

Throughout the project Syncon provided exceptional oversight and quality control; to guarantee the success of this project. Communication and updates were provided without request.  There was never an “Us vs. Them” mentality; it was always a team effort – especially when the Government changed the criteria, the contractor’s response was, “I’ll get right on it”. Pier 11 shore power for the FORD was ready prior to the FORD arrival. This was an incredibly high visibility project with many interested parties. I would absolutely work with Syncon on future projects; their reliability and professionalism is exceptional.
