This project involved the design and construction of a total of 13,000 SF in building additions connected to an existing 34,000 SF Secure Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) facility.
The new office addition was designed to a minimum DCID 6/9 Physical Security Standards for SCIF. It includes space for research and administrative functions, workstations and private offices, conference suite, training room, restrooms, kitchenette, support areas, and engineering and communication spaces, complete with all associated mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection/life safety systems.
The new secured entrance addition consists of a significantly expanded Access Control Center (ACC), moving the functions outside of the building and providing a SCIF access hallway between the addition and existing building. The existing ACC facility, located within the facility, was renovated for office, support and engineering spaces.
Telecommunication cabletrays, conduits and wires and a telecommunication closet were installed to support the new office area and conference room. Utilities necessary to support the new additions were installed and tied to the existing systems. The existing back-up power grid was extended to support the new spaces.
Site improvements included the re-grading of the site to accommodate the building additions, and a 30-car new surface parking lot.
The project meets Federal energy conservation criteria.
