Description: This objective of this project was to repair the identified deficiencies for Joint Commission, including both NFPA 101 Life Safety Code PFI (Project For Improvement) deficiencies, as well as identified utility system deficiencies (EC 02.05) at building 299, 300 and 301, Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center (DDEAMC), Fort Gordon, Ga. Robins & Morton provided sprinkler revisions, architectural modifications, fire alarm additions, mechanical room renovations, and miscellaneous repairs for this project. The sprinkler revisions included providing labor and materials to resolve the identified sprinkler deficiencies. Robins & Morton was also responsible for installing addressable smoke detectors, associated wiring, tie-in to existing system and update drawings/fire alarm system. The architectural renovations included renovations to the first, second and third floors. On the first floor, Robins & Morton installed an enclose around stairwell 1E-ST4, which required heavy implementation of Interim Life Safety Measures (ILSM). Also, on the first floor, we were required to demolish concrete block walls, doors, and associated frames. The existing ceilings were lowered, and replacement VCT flooring was installed. A new storage room was constructed to include two-hour rated walls. On the second floor, we demolished the designated walls, shelving, and installed replacement storage, work surfaces, and light fixtures. On the third floor, Robins & Morton demolished existing fencing, plywood, and shelving, and constructed a new storage room for the facility. Robins & Morton tracked all applicable LEED credits during construction of this project.
