To create a new Australia–Canada–United Kingdom Reprogramming Laboratory (ACURL), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, elected to construct an addition and alteration to Building 614 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The ACURL provides F-35 aircraft with customized mission data for partner nations of the United States.
The project involved approximately 11,950 square feet of alterations and an 11,837-square foot addition. Bullock Tice Associates provided architectural services as part of a design team and requested Fisher Engineering, Inc. (FEI) to provide performance-based fire protection system design services and life safety analysis as part of the design team.
Specifically, FEI performed a one-day site visit to review the existing fire sprinkler, fire alarm/mass notification and life safety features of the building; developed a design analysis of the facility’s interior life safety, fire sprinkler, fire alarm and mass notification systems; developed construction documents consisting of a specification and a drawing set of the interior fire sprinkler, fire alarm and mass notification systems; participated in design review meetings and weekly BIM coordination conference calls; and provided the client and other design/build team engineers with assistance and coordination with other features of the building affected by the fire sprinkler, fire alarm/mass notification and life safety systems.
