DTC was selected as the prime design-build contractor in conjunction with CR Architecture + Design for an $8.6 million contract for the design and construction of a new Multi-Mission Building at USCG Sector Field Office (SFO) Galveston, TX.
DTC provided all engineering, construction management, general contracting, supervision, quality control and safety. The team designed and built an approximately the 19,300 GSF three-story, pile supported Multi-Mission Building with building spaces that included offices, shops, training rooms, a communications center, an emergency generator room, locker rooms, an armory, boat bay, storage, mechanical equipment room, and telecommunications rooms.
The project consisted of a three story building that houses boat maintenance bays with an overhead crane, office space, training rooms, locker and shower facilities as well as a break room. CR Architecture + Design provided architectural services.
Special design consideration were given for hurricane resistance including the roof and walls system design, 75 foot deep pile foundation system, location of building utilities and mechanical systems above the flood level and breakaway walls below the flood elevation.
Sustainable initiatives for the building include heat island reduction for the roof and site, 40 percent reduction of water usage for plumbing systems, use of recycled content and local materials and reduced construction waste.
New Multi-Mission Building will achieve LEED® Silver requirements.
The project included new fire alarm and mass notification systems.
