Based on the government requirement to reduce helicopter flight hours and still attain mission readiness requirements for the MH60 Navy helicopter squadron, this government procurement will provide two new helicopter simulators that will support operational sustainment training in the new high-bay addition.
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.
USNO TRENCHING & DIRECT BURIED CONDUIT INSTALLATION
Located in the heart of Washington, DC. and originally built in 1893, the US Naval Observatory is not only the home of the historic 26 inch refractor telescpoe but it is also serves as the historic residence of key government personnel. Project exemplars included fast-track design, task order based contract delivery in design-build environment engaged with multiple agency stakeholders and NAVFAC organizational leads.
This Design-Build (DB) project consisted of phased renovations to two separate buildings (11,000 SQFT.) for the stand-up of the C27 Asset Project Office (APO). Bldg. 79 required interior renovations to create a permanent space to provide computer and administrative areas needed by flight crew members and maintenance technicians.
This integrated Design Build (DB) project team provided the engineering and new construction of the chilled water systems supporting key operations centers in Building 250 (9,000 SQFT). General design and construction included the key aspect of the project was to provide a new redundant (N + N) external 385-ton Chilled Water (CW) systems supporting mission critical spaces of existing high-security structures.
This integrated Design-Build (DB) team provided the complete demolition, re-design and new construction of key operations centers at Building 250 and Building 355 (12,000 SQFT) . Due to the high-security environment of the facility and the fact that most of internal construction was conducted while spaces were occupied, Syncon DB team successfully managed access and escort requirements to conducted work during regular and after hours.
This Design-Bid-Build (DBB) project involved multiple disciplines where work was conducted in a high traffic operational area between to Submarine dry docks. The project included extensive high voltage manhole survey to support the new conductor routing, and enlargement of the size of the electrical vault two support new switch gear. Special scheduling was applied to sequence the work in four (4) phased parts to coordinate with the busy and ongoing activities of the piers.
BLDG 127, AEGIS ASHORE TEAM TRAINER (AATT) INSTALLATION
Syncon provided a high-fidelity AEGIS Ashore Trainer at Gallery Hall, Dam Neck Annex, housing a Lockheed Martin mock-up of the combat information center providing our US Sailors and teams the opportunity to experience working with the system, and to certify for operations prior to deployment to Romania and other locations.
This is a Design-Build Project in support of the Navy Gateway Inns and Suites (NGIS) mission to provide hotel grade accommodations for active duty military personnel. During the design phase, Syncon and our Designer of Record, Waller Todd & Sadler worked in collaboration with the government and client to ensure the requirements of the RFP were properly captured for the end product.

BUILDING 56 (WATER PLANT) DEFENSE SUPPLY CENTER RICHMOND (DSCR)
This Design-Bid-Build (DBB) project for the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) was conducted on the secure facility of the Defense Supply Center Richmond (DSCR).
This design-build project was performed on an active fire station that had to remain operational and supports the Emergency Crash Response Unit for the NAS Oceana Air Field.
Completion date: 09/16/2013
BLDG 101 RENOVATIONS
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.
Based on Syncon’s to previous task orders, the Department of Veterans Affairs awarded this design-build contract to improve water utility infrastructure, upgrade equipment to control water ﬂow, improve temperature control and increase energy savings for the campus chilled supply at the VA Medical Center in Fayetteville, NC.
