This high-security compound is a command and control center for the 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, Colorado. Operating out of three stories and 150,000 square feet, the personnel here support military operations in global campaigns. The facility includes multiple joint operations centers, network operations centers, sensitive compartmentalized information facilities, briefing rooms, and data centers. It is certified LEED Silver, is built to Anti-Terrorism & Force Protection criteria, and is equipped with direct satellite uplink lines to frontline soldiers.
PCL’s client, the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), had a very strict budget and timeline for this project, and engaged PCL in preconstruction services using a “design-assist” method of procurement to avoid redesign and delays. This proved beneficial, as PCL was able to establish and maintain the desired budget, suggest multiple cost-saving measures, manage the design development process, and provide constructability reviews prior to construction. The project was completed under the original budget and the client was able to use the new facility four days prior to the mission critical occupancy date. This effort culminated in PCL’s receiving an Outstanding CCASS rating on the project, the highest mark achievable through the USACE.
