Fort Bragg-16th Military Police Kennel Addition

The project addressed the addition and the renovation of Building 2-7201 as necessary to bring the existing building up to current codes, DPW requirements, and mission capabilities as an office building for the 550th Military Police . The existing one story structure was built in 1960’s and was constructed as a military police dog kennel and administration office. The existing facility consisted of 6,226 SF with 1,707 being the administration office. The facility has an on-grade concrete floor slab with concrete block walls and the shingled roof system is supported by wood roof joists. The 550th MPs needed more space in the administration section of the building for daily activities so a addition was designed for the facility. The rest of the facility was in need a renovation due to the age and use of the building. The renovations will impact the administration office only.
The Scope of Work for the project included the design of a 625 SF addition in the greenspace north connected to the existing muliti-purpose room of the existing building and is used as an open office area. The addition is a slab on grade with a CMU bearing wall for the exterior walls. The new shingled roof is supported by wood roof trusses. New floors, walls, ceiling, and finishes were installed. New HVAC was installed throughout the addition along with new lighting, electrical, and data layouts.  The renovation of the rest of the administration office included the following spaces; open offices, standalone offices, latrines, mechanical, electrical, communications. Demolition consisted of the existing flooring, walls, ceiling, and exterior windows/doors. The new work consisted of the exterior walls patched and painted, installed new flooring, painting of interior walls/doors/door frames, new door hardware, new ATFP upgraded exterior doors/windows, and new ceilings. A new fire alarm and mass notification system was installed. The existing HVAC ductwork was cleaned and the controls upgraded. The existing lighting fixtures were cleaned, relamped, and new data system installed. The latrines were remodeled with new fixtures, toilet accessories, and toilet partitions. The existing roof was replaced due weathering/ware and because some of the roof decking is bulging. The existing HVAC in the kennels was not working correctly and the exhaust fans were repaired and controls were updated. The building was not ADA accessible due to an elevation issue with the grade and finish floor so a new ramp and landing was installed.
