GSA 7th Floor Probation Office Remodel

Cheyenne, Wyoming

The 7th Floor Probation Office Remodel was a design-build project that E-Corp completed in two phases at the JC O’Mahoney Federal Courthouse. The highly secure building remained occupied during both phases. The project included asbestos abatement, demolition, drywall, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, paint, carpet, fire sprinklers, fire alarms, case and trim work, ceiling work, and A & E.

The first phase—which was the larger of the two—was completed while the second phase area was fully occupied. The E-Corp team worked closely with tenants to coordinate the phasing and move from phase to phase.

Phase one consisted of the majority of the demolition and abatement. Demolition for this project was exceptionally complex. The building space was used for high-security operations, including holding inmates. For security purposes, we had to be extra diligent in keeping track of our tools. Additionally, all of the walls consisted of double-layer drywall with a thick wire mesh underneath, which made it extremely difficult to remove the walls. We also dealt with bulletproof walls that were layered with Kevlar and were impossible to cut.
