Contract Description:

The Advanced Munitions Technology Complex (AMTC) project includes construction of eight primary facilities for development of nano energetic/explosive technologies and the development, integration, rapid prototyping, and fielding of advance munitions. The buildings incorporate reinforced concrete construction and concrete masonry units (CMU) with a combination of CMU split face veneer, metal panel system, pre-cast panels, and translucent fiberglass panel system in clearstory applications for the exterior of the facility; superflat floors; flat roof systems consisting of white PVC membrane over tapered insulation and a concrete deck; and earth berm (with shotcrete top slab) covered operational and storage bunkers. The design incorporates explosives safety, anti-terrorism force protection (AT/FP) physical security, and life safety requirements, as well acoustic and vibration mitigation techniques. Mitigation of explosive effects, including blast, thermal and fragment hazards, is provided with hardened reinforced concrete framing and steel fragment shields. Blast doors include single-swing to sliding doors, for intentional detonation or accidental detonation, to meet blast loading, response criteria, minimum fragment shield thickness, and seal requirements.

LEED Silver certification is required for the AMTC campus with the objective to reduce total ownership cost through long-term energy performance, conservation of potable water and resources, reduced maintenance and operating costs, and a healthy and productive work environment. Project site work includes clearing, cut/fill, grading, security fence, storm water drainage, utilities, and pavements. Mechanical systems include individual chiller plants, condensing type, gas-fired boilers, single duct variable air volume air handling units, with direct digital control (DDC) system. Plumbing systems include domestic hot and cold water, natural gas, sanitary sewer, industrial waste, storm, compressed air, purge gas generator system, ODCA (oxygen depleted compressed air) gas generator system, vacuum systems, as well as process cooling water chillers, split DX systems, and low pressure steam for process heating and humidification. Electrical systems include power, lighting, communication/Data, audio visual, intrusion detection system, access control system, and lightning protection. Fire protection systems include new fire water distribution system (with central fire pump house), fire alarm with mass notification (including strobes, beacons, horns, and audible notification) and fire sprinkler system (wet sprinkler and ultra-high-speed deluge systems).

The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for this project is 236220.
