Construct Addition, Building 42

Nellis Air Force Base, Utah

Construct Addition, Building 42 was a 100 percent design-build project for the new construction of a complete and usable 2,200 square foot facility with a 300 square foot secured room at Nellis AFB. The addition is a standalone facility connected to an existing building by an enclosed walkway. The addition matches the existing building's exterior finishes.

For this project, E-Corp met Director of Central Intelligence Directive 6/9 and the 57 Wing Advanced Program Office’s construction requirements while constructing a building that housed sensitive compartmented information. The secured room perimeter walls were constructed to meet STC-50 rated wall assemblies (floor to ceiling) and hard-lid ceiling assembly. We constructed a communication room approximately 10 feet by 7 feet and a separate mechanical/electrical room. The remaining space was used as an open office space for 17 people. The project included the following:

  •  A complete electrical power system to support all equipment and occupants
  • A complete telecommunications system that included 30 communications quadplex outlets
  • A complete heat detection system (fire alarm) that meets UFC 3-600-01 requirements and a mass notification system in the new addition
  • A fully functional, separate HVAC, mechanical, and plumbing system with adequately sized, zoned, and split system heat pump HVAC units
  • A complete and fully operational Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Access Control System connected to and compatible with the existing Building 42 system and the Nellis AFB system, meeting DCID 6/9 and 57 WG/AP requirements
  • One restroom with one shower, one lavatory, two water closets (one handicap-accessible), and associated metal partitions
  • Restoration of the desert landscape and relocation of irrigation as necessary around the new facility
