KGS was awarded a construction project at Naval Submarine Base New London to replace two existing cooling towers at Building 518 to maintain air-conditioning capabilities of the 104,000 square foot Submarine Learning Center. The scope included facility protection, demolition, mechanical, and electrical with extensive phasing coordination. KGS received commendations for the construction work on top of Building 518 during the rough winter months. Nearly 1,000 staff members utilize the building daily, therefore, extensive precautions were undertaken to support the users’ needs.

Referencing the Building 518 Cooling Towers replacement project the contractor is well organized, responds quickly, and maintains a clean job site. In closing it’s easy to complain and I do at times. My intent is to thank PWD and KGS for their outstanding efforts.”
