Global Operations Center Renovation?-?Offutt Air Force Base, Neb.
Phase I of the Global Operations Center Renovation done under subcontract with Lockheed martin, was an $8 million design-assist renovation of a 14,000-square-foot facility located two stories beneath the surface. Phase I included upgrades to existing finishes, electrical systems and fire suppression systems, while maintaining full operational capabilities.
Due to satisfaction with the initial contract (Phase I) USSTRATCOM initiated a significant change to the scope of work and awarded Phase II. This follow-on work, in addition to two other owner-initiated scope changes, was valued at nearly $4 million.
Unique aspects of this project included strict security requirements regarding access to Offutt Air Force Base/USSTRATCOM. Coordination with USSTRATCOM security personnel required clearance checks at the start and finish of shift, in addition to teaming with security escorts while performing activities on the base. Additionally, Kiewit designed and installed a unique material handling system to transport demolished materials to the surface and deliver new materials into the Global Operations Center.
