Air Support Operations Squadron (ASOS) Training Facility – Design/Build – USAF & USACE Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska
Tunista Construction completed this Design/Build project in partnership with USKH Architects and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Tunista Construction utilized a Pre-Engineered Building (PEB) to meet the needs of the Air Force for the new 12,000 SF multi-purpose garage facility to store the local contingency of MRAP vehicles.
In addition to the main garage facility, a new HUMVEE trailer storage structure was erected on site. As a restricted access site, the ASOS project addressed new structural needs, as well utility upgrades to the existing ASOS facility including installation of 3,000 feet of new water and natural gas service lines. The utility upgrades were complemented by a complete conversion and upgrade to the current HVAC system to the existing ASOS facility.
Procured through the Alpha Sole Source methodology and approach, our team worked very closely with the government (USACE & Air Force), our design manager USKH, as well as key subcontractors to identify fast-track opportunities in design, scheduling, procurement and construction. This effort provided for value engineering opportunities not only for this project but for future work the Air Force was planning upon completion of this project.
