Federal Construction Group, Inc. is tasked to Remodel Storage Facility Building 347 at the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC).
NHRC Storage Facility, building 347 requires services to reclaim unused work and storage spaces, rebuild/ recondition existing heating systems, and to perform other renovations identified as needing safety compliance. The services rendered will include removal of existing materials (walls, panels, lighting, rails, doors, etc.) and renovation, installation and configuration of new materials (walls, panels, lighting, rails, doors, etc.), as required.
It is the FedCon’s responsibility to verify existing conditions prior to development of the work plan.
1. General: Building 347 is located at the Point Loma Naval Base in San Diego, California. The 4,720 square foot two-story building was constructed in 1940 and renovated in 1989. It is not a historic structure. The structure is exempt from the Antiterrorism/Force Protection improvement requirement. The structure is a storage facility and will be provided to the contractor empty.
2. Architectural: The current storage roof covering is an asphalt shingle system. Roof drainage is via gravity drip, gutter, and downspout to the site perimeter. The windows are insulated, operable, aluminum units. Exterior doors are predominately-wood doors in wood frame units. The primary building floor finishes consist of carpeting and vinyl sheet flooring. Wall finishes consist primarily of wallpapered and painted gypsum wallboard. Ceilings consist of predominately 9 x 9 inch adhered acoustical tiles and 2 x 4 insulated acoustic tiles in a suspended grid. The interior door assemblies consist primarily of wood doors in wood frames.
3. Structural: The substructure consists of wood beams and columns on pier footings. The superstructure is constructed primarily of wood load-bearing walls with a wood deck. The exterior walls are wood stud construction with plywood sheathing covered by original wood shiplap siding.
4. Electrical: The building is powered by a 120/208 volt 200 ampere three-phase service. Power is distributed via branch circuit breaker panel boards. Interior lighting is predominately fluorescent lighting with type T-12 lamps with magnetic ballasts. Branch circuit wiring is generally insulated conductors in EMT. LED style exit signs with integral batteries illuminate exit doors.
5. Mechanical/Plumbing: The building is heated with two natural gas-fired warm air furnaces located in the first floor mechanical room. Air conditioning is distributed by galvanized metal supply and return ducts. Domestic water piping is generally concealed within the crawl space or located within finished walls. Where visible, piping is generally copper. Drain waste and vent (DWV) piping is generally cast iron with some sections of galvanized and PVC piping. No piping system exists for roof drainage. The building is supplied with a 1” natural gas service. Natural gas piping is black iron. There is a substantial leak on the second floor on the north-east side of Building 347 in what was
1. the photo lab development room. The potential for mold is present.
2. Fire Protection/Fire Alarm: The building is not protected by a sprinkler system. Fire extinguishers are in place for manual fire suppression. The building has a manual fire alarm system with a central initiation switch and alarm horns.
3. Communications: The building has a public address system.
4. Signage: Room signage throughout the building does not comply with American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) Sec. 4.30 requirements and is beyond its useful life.
