Currently ongoing, the project at Hurlburt Field Air Force Base involves the construction of a Special Operations Forces (SOF) Special Tactics Operations Facility. The contract calls for the demolition of existing infrastructure and the construction of more than 103,700 square feet of new facilities, meeting all standards for high performance and sustainability set by the Department of Defense.
Specifics include constructing facilities with foundation and floor slab, structural framing, insulated walls, sloped roofs, environmental control, fire detection and suppression and all necessary support. Functional areas include administrative areas (command, operations, logistics, secure planning, training, simulators, weather, intel, and mission support), team rooms, equipment, vehicle and watercraft maintenance and storage areas (individual gear cages, weapons/armory, radios, computers, dive shop, medical logistics, war readiness materials), and covered storage area.
Unique features include concrete hardstand, rappelling tower and antenna platform. Includes utilities, site improvements, pavements (roadway, parking and marshalling yard), communications, passive force protection and all other necessary support.
Department of Defense (DoD) principles for high performance and sustainable building requirements will be included in the design and construction of the project in accordance with federal laws and Executive Orders. Low impact development features will be included in the design and construction as appropriate. This project will provide Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection (AT/FP) features and comply with AT/FP regulations and physical security mitigation in accordance with DoD Minimum Anti-Terrorism Standards for Buildings. Appropriate cybersecurity measures will be applied to the facility-related control systems in accordance with current DoD criteria.
