The Blair Remy Team provided the project management, architecture, MEP, structural and civil engineering, concept design, interior design and programming, to develop a Design-Build RFP which was used to solicit bids for construction of the Regional Maintenance Training Facility (RMTF) Addition and Alteration as part of the KC-46A bed-down utilizing the Design/Build method.
The facility is located on the existing site of Building 852, known as the Field Training Detachment (FTD) and is attached to the FTD by means of an enclosed corridor. The main purpose of the RMTF is to provide training facilities for KC-46A personnel. Major features of the new facility include various training rooms and classrooms and support areas such as restrooms, utility rooms and a break room. The design Charrette Report consisted of the project data and technical requirements which were used in design development.
The project constructed a multi-story facility addition and renovated an existing building to provide five high bay areas for airframe maintenance training devices, parts storage, briefing rooms, classrooms, mechanical room, computer room, restrooms, administrative areas, electrical/mechanical and fire protection detection/suppression systems. The existing building’s systems were upgraded where necessary; and existing walls, doors and partitions relocated to provide properly sized and configured classrooms, offices and restrooms.
Also included was all associated utility site work, communications support, environmental controls, pavements, parking, exterior lighting and landscaping. The project was designed in accordance with DoD UFC and DoD Anti-terrorism/Force Protection requirements.
