Ship Operations Building – U.S. Navy, Pearl Harbor, HI
The project scope involved the retrofit of an existing historic pier and the construction of a new 17,000-square-foot building, consisting of office and warehouse space.
The historic pier involved retrofit upgrades to the electrical systems, including new meter cabinets, new lighting fixtures, and new power and data wiring. The new building was constructed of split-faced concrete masonry units (CMU) accented with decorative horizontal bands, which provided a cost-effective yet pleasing exterior design aesthetic.
The project included 1,004 square meters (10,807 s.f.) of administrative space and 574 square meters (6,178 s.f.) of warehouse space.
The project site and building location presented unique challenges to meet the Department of Defense anti-terrorism and force protection (AT/FP) requirements. However, with careful design consideration and extensive collaboration between the design team and the Base authorities, all ATFP requirements were met.
In addition to this being a design-build project, it was a joint effort between multiple federal agencies, including Hickam Air Force Base, Pearl Harbor Naval Station, and the Army Corps of Engineers. Federal government experience and strong communication amongst all parties helped us achieve successful completion of the project.
