Hangar 1811 Renovation at McGuire AFB, NJ
NAVFAC, U.S Department of Navy

Working at the assistant project engineer I helped design and plan out the renovation of the Hanger 1811 of the McGuire AFB. Under an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Navy, I helped designed a 36,000-square-foot renovation to a 1950s-era steel-frame hangar at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. The Navy required the finished project to achieve a minimum of a Silver Certification under the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED, but the project exceeded the level necessary for Silver certification and achieved Gold.

Repair and Modernization of Building 178
Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Kittery, ME

I helped provided project management and engineering services for the preparation of a Design-Build Request for Proposal package to repair and modernize the former Naval Shipways building at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. The steel framed 170,000 square foot structure was built between 1939 and 1944 and is a contributing resource in the Shipyard's Historical District. The scope of the project included exterior envelope upgrades, structural modifications, as well as energy efficient systems replacements and upgrades. Structural modifications will restore the lifting and handling capabilities, provide waterside stabilization supporting for barge delivery, upgrade the crane rail system, and provide new concrete flooring to increase the existing storage capacity. High efficiency mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems will support the LEED Core & Shell certification for the modernized facility. Environmental investigations and concrete testing programs were conducted as well.
