Bryan Construction is approximately 70 percent complete with the new Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility Buildings at Fort Carson, Colorado Springs. The project includes constructing two new 57,000 square foot TEMF buildings and seven single-story pre-engineered metal buildings ranging in size from 4,000 square feet to 5,400 square feet. The two-story TEMF buildings feature spread footings, precast structure with roof joists, and concrete slab on grade with radiant heating. Installed equipment and systems will provide service for tanks and large vehicles used by the Army, and the site contains large parking areas of hardstand paving.
The 83-acre site offers several challenges. A heavily-trafficked roadway splits the job site in half. One TEMF building on the south side (along with four metal buildings) and the other TEMF building (and four metal buildings) on the north make this project difficult to access, and coordination is critical. In the middle of our project site, another active project, built by a separate contractor, makes logistics and coordination essential. The Fort Carson Airway is to the east of the job site, with helicopters and drones frequently flying over at very low altitude, adding another element to plan around.
The Bryan team has done a great job staying proactive with communications with the separate contract working in the middle of our project and the Corps and the Airway. The project is starting interior finishes at the TEMF buildings. Structural steel and roofing are moving forward at four of the metal buildings, foundations are being built for the last three metal buildings, and the project is on schedule. The next phase is getting large 20 feet by 15 feet bi-fold doors installed and finishing out the first-floor maintenance area, elevator install, finishes, and getting ready for commissioning. Bryan and our trade partners are working very well with the Corps and building on our relationship here at Fort Carson.
