This design-build project included repairs and expansion to the existing Fort Benning Supper Club Building 129 (12,000 SF) which houses a dining room, kitchen, offices, locker rooms, storage, and bathrooms. Work included, but is not limited to, the demolition of storage rooms and unused kitchen; replacing HVAC and electrical systems, domestic water heater, fire alarm and mass notification systems, building lighting, and communications; repair latrines; repair administrative rooms; provide fire sprinkler system; construct storage rooms; replace roof; repair ADA access into the building; replace finishes on walls, floors, and ceilings; repair and paint building exterior and basement; repair and add to existing parking (178 spaces); repair storm drains; remove and/or abate asbestos.
This project’s required scope included installation of a fire suppression system. The existing plaster/gypsum board ceiling design made installation challenging. The ceiling is a series of pyramid shapes with light fixtures at each point. The existing ceiling remained, so the penetrations for the sprinkler heads had to be repaired, as well as, areas cut for access to install the fire suppression system.
