The Defense Logistics Agency in Pennsylvania has been renovating their campus in a number of areas over the past few years. After the results of the security system assessment, the DLA decided to do a campus-wide Mass Notification renovation. Cromwell assisted with determining the areas in need of the most repair and provided full design documents for the upgrades.
Fort Jackson, South Carolina, wanted to add 3 Maximum Overload Protection Devices to three chillers located at the Central Energy Plant #1. A site study was conducted and Cromwell provided full design documents and specifications to install new protection devices in the building’s interior and to remove the existing switches that were located on the exterior of the building.
Cromwell worked with AMR Architects on a new 35 unit apartment building. There are one and two bedroom units spread across three levels. Full design services for Structural, Mechanical, Electrical, Fire Protection, and Plumbing Engineering were provided. The apartments are in close proximity to MacArthur Park, the River Market, and the downtown business district. It is located in a Historic District and the design of the new building had to adhere to strict design guidelines because of the location. This project is designed as an effort to affect motivation in the revitalization movement of the SoMA area of Little Rock.
The National Center for Toxicological Research, located in Jefferson, AR, plays a critical role in the missions of FDA and the Department of Health and Human Services to promote and protect public health. The Processing Area in Building 53B was last renovated in the mid 1980’s and was in need of Mechanical overhaul. Services included plans, specifications, design analysis, and a cost estimate for a new air handler and exhaust fan. Renovation of this area is critical to the Center’s research mission to have reliable and efficient equipment for the animals that are processed into the research facility.
Cromwell assisted the 81st Regional Command with a number of Lifecycle Reset projects over the past few years. When the Puerto Nuevo site was analyzed, it was determined that the Automatic Transfer Switch, or ATS, for the generator was much older than the typical lifespan of a generator. Cromwell was tasked with the design for the replacement of the equipment and associated mechanical, electrical, and plumbing redesigns that would accompany the change. User requirements, cost, harsh weather conditions, and poor quality were all determining factors in the type of replacement that was selected. We provided an assessment report of the existing equipment as well as full design documents for the replacement.
Most electrical systems have to account for arc faults, a type of electrical explosion or discharge. The heat and light produced during an arc fault is called an arc flash, which can have very devastating effects on an electrical system. The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences was seeking more information on how their electrical systems would be impacted should an arc fault occur. The main campus of UAMS got a full service analysis that consisted of data collection, Single Line Modeling, Engineering Analysis, Training and Hazard Labeling of the electrical system from service entrance down to the distribution panel level, and single line diagrams of the as-built conditions of the electrical system.
Cromwell performed a Hydrological Study for several campuses in the Arkansas State University System including Jonesboro, Newport, and Marked Tree. Once this study was complete, Cromwell developed the study further into a Landscape Master Plan for the campuses involved. This master plan consisted of landscaping, Grading Plans, and a Hydraulic Analysis for the long range development within the Floodway/Floodplain in Jonesboro.
Arkansas State University at Newport Nursing and Allied Services program was considering a move into a building owned by the Newport Hospital. Cromwell assisted with a design charrette to determine whether or not the building will be able to fit the needs of the educational program. A model was created of the existing floor plan and a conceptual floor plan was developed as well.
Cromwell joined with Architectural firm Little and Associates to design a new 7-12 grade school for the Buffalo Island Central School District in Monette, AR. Cromwell provided full design documents for the Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing aspects of the project.
Cromwell joined with Architectural firm Little and Associates to design a new K-6 grade school for the Buffalo Island Central School District in Leachville, AR. Cromwell provided full design documents for the Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing aspects of the project.
