This Design-Build project was to provide a new 4,600SF pre-engineered metal building to serve inflatable boat mission training at Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base in Norfolk, Virginia. This ground-up, new construction project consisted of new water, sewer, and stormwater utility service to a structural concrete foundation and slab to serve as the flooring of the facility. This structural steel facility was designed to withstand Hurricane force winds and seismic activity.
The facility included mechanical, electrical, fire protection and bolstered two (2) motorized hurricane compliant coiling service doors, two (2) galvanized steel personnel doors with 5-button cypher locks, and a clear concrete floor sealer over the new concrete slab-on-grade.
Additional civil work included stormwater management, sidewalks, curbs, driveways and parking asphalt with signage and bumpers.
COVID-19: This contract was awarded during the height on the COVID restrictions, making meeting in person for the Design-Build collaboration impossible. Understanding this impact, and in an effort to mitigate lost time, MIG GOV initiated collaborative virtual meetings utilizing Microsoft Teams. This method of communication was invaluable to the overall design effort and schedule to carry out the mission requirements for the warfighter.
MIG GOV worked with our DOR, RRMM, and Structural disciplines to design the concrete floor slab to accommodate cradles supporting each RHIB, each of which weigh over 5 TONS.
