Grunley’s well established and proven system for managing high performance parameters on small and large construction projects within tight timeframes was vital to this project. This project included the demolition, renovation, and construction of new SCIF space, offices, and storage area in existing building 19 as well as the demolition of existing building 61 and construction of the new concrete mechanical building 61. The project is located in Washington, DC.
Grunley performed selective demolition on 39,000 SF of the lower level of the building in preparation of the new construction. The entire space was completely shielded as well, isolating the building core from this SCIF rated space. Raised floor systems were installed to support LAN rooms. Separate cooling systems were installed to also support the LAN rooms. The entire area was provided with normal, emergency and UPS power systems. Intrusion detection and access controls were installed.
This portion of the work included demolition of an existing building that houses mechanical equipment and systems and the construction of a new mechanical services building. The ~7,200 SF concrete building includes a 6’ thick mat-slab, sheeting and shoring, new utilities, new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing equipment and services. In addition, this building received a green roof and has some ornamental metal work that was designed to screen the cooling tower from view on Nebraska Avenue.
