Project Description:

The existing building was a square shape with an open courtyard in the center. The new 10,000 sf building was built in the center taking the courtyard leaving a 20 ft access all the way around between the new and old building.

Construction of a complete new building and the civil site work required to support a new facility. This facility is designed to support food service for personnel performing scientific and technological research for the United States in a high-secured area. The laboratory connecting to the cafeteria encompasses all the
way around the new facility with a 20 ft. wide entrance with a 20 ft.
high max over this entrance. The existing building was a square shape with an open courtyard.

This was a challenging workspace to perform and is considered a confined workspace. It required a great deal of coordination/cooperation between all trades because there was not any room for stored materials inside the construction area. As well, cleanup was a constant premium due to dumpsters located outside the building area. Sherrick was awarded safe contractor award for 3rd quarter 2004 by the USACE. This due in large part to an onsite safety audit conducted by the USACE and the confined workspace for the performance of this contract.

The USACE used all funding allocated but the end user did continued to receive money, the C.O. did keep the contract open to continue to purchase items for the customer (via change order) on the vehicle. Some were original options some were the desire of the end user. This project was completed on time and the building was commissioned on the dates the USACE set.
