NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic, Demolition of Building 20 and the Consolidation of Building 107, Naval Submarine Base New London, Groton, CT
KGS renovated a major portion of Building 107 and converted the space from a former Public Works garage into a shop area. The area was completely gutted and all new plumbing, mechanical, HVAC, electrical, telecommunications, compressed air, fire alarm, and fire suppression systems were installed.
To accommodate the new tenant in Building 107, additional door openings were cut through brick walls to join spaces. A 10-ton bridge crane and support structure were installed. A mezzanine area was refurbished to install two offices on the upper level and two small workshops on the lower level.
Demolition of Building 20 is underway and includes hazardous material abatement (asbestos containing materials and lead-based paint), building demolition, and restoring the site with asphalt for a parking area. Demolition is being coordinated with the move out of Navy Diver activities.
KGS salvaged and removed designated government equipment in Building 107. KGS demolished and disposed of interior concrete masonry unit (CMU)/brick walls and existing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. KGS also removed the fire door, roll-up doors, stairs and railing, and fencing. KGS ensured demolition occurred in accordance with approved plans and monitored operators and laborers to ensure safety procedures were followed and appropriate work practices were in place. There were no lost-time injuries or accidents during this project.
