E-Corp has completed more than 200 design-build projects. We have developed longstanding relationships with architects and suppliers throughout 15 states. Below are examples of design-build projects we have completed.
Historic Fire Station Renovation, Bldg 1151
Hill Air Force Base, Utah
Building 1151 was constructed in the 1960s and required complete renovation and building upgrades to meet Hill AFB’s mission requirements for fire-fighting capabilities. E-Corp renovated the 3,500 square foot fire station and constructed a new 1,100 square foot fire truck bay with a patio. The renovation included the following:
- Seismic retrofit to all structural connection of steel, masonry, and concrete
- Replacement or upgrade of all mechanical, plumbing, communications, and electrical system to comply with current code requirements
- Installation of a new back-up generator
Replacement of insulation, doors, windows, and the roof system
- Reconfiguring of the interior to provide new restrooms (with showers), sleeping areas, kitchen facilities, an operations center, exercise and recreation rooms, and laundry facilities
AJC architects provided design services for both the renovation and addition to the main fire station. Our team blended the new elements to match the existing style from the 1960s—providing an aesthetically pleasing and mission-functional facility. The newly renovated fire station became the main Emergency Operation Center for the Base. Despite an extremely short timeline, E-Corp and ajc architects completed the project four months ahead of schedule. In 2011, our team received the Air Force Materiel Command Design Merit Award for this project.
FAA / Jacobs Mod 4 Renovations
Salt Lake City, Utah
For this project, E-Corp removed and replaced the curtain wall glazing and support structure at the FAA’s Salt Lake City Air Traffic Control Center (ARTCC). This facility is an active 24-hour radar facility for the FAA. During the curtain wall replacement, we removed asbestos insulation. In addition to replacing the curtain wall, renovations for this project included the following:
- Modernization of the elevator
- Structural modifications above ceiling to house all utilities and HVAC
- New architectural, mechanical, and electrical modifications
- Fire protection
- Interior construction for a new air traffic control room
- Heavy in-ceiling security grating, new walls, HVAC, electrical, fire sprinkler, intrusion detections system, and all finishes
- Management and labor of an elevator replacement
Top level security clearances and protocol had to be upheld so as not to disturb the operations of the facility. The curtain wall had to be removed and replaced while the offices adjacent to the exterior of the building remained occupied. E-Corp’s stringent safety standards, risk management, and quality control led to this design-build project being completed safely, on time, and without disruption to working personnel or critical FAA missions. The renovations for this project also took place directly above the critical air traffic operating systems while the building remained fully occupied and occupational, requiring E-Corp to exercise extreme care and risk management during all construction activities.
National Park Service Boulder Beach Campground Rehabilitation
Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Nevada
E-Corp was contracted to renovate an existing campground at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. This included the demolition of 5 existing restroom facilities, loop roads, campsites, and associated utilities and the construction of 59 new campsites with concrete RV pads, 5 new restroom facilities, 6 new handicap-accessible campsites, and new asphalt roads. This also included installing utilities to the restroom facilities and VIP sites.
This project included the installation of two new primary electrical services. The installation included the following:
- Two metered main panels and 7 metered subpanels
- Approximately 2700 linear feet of electrical trenching
- Eight 30/50-amp RV panels with convenience receptacles
- Seventeen asphalt road crossings
E-Corp worked with the local park staff and guests to minimize the impact of construction on their daily operations. We made efforts to limit disruptions to the occupied campground facilities adjacent to the project through constant communication with the camp hosts and Park Service staff.
We were also able to do this project without disrupting the environment. The original design called for the demolition of existing trees that were in excess of 80 years old. We worked closely with our design team and the site inspector to find a solution that allowed the intent of the design to be met without harming existing trees. Through our efforts, we were able to save all but one of the trees slated for removal, providing a better environment for the park’s guests.
E-Corp was able to find many areas for improvement in the design and finish of the buildings and RV sites that set us apart from our competitors. We approached the construction from an end user perspective, allowing us to identify areas of improvement for existing facilities on site. This approach received accolades from the local park maintenance staff and management.
