P-495 APPLIED INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITY MCAS
OWNER - MARINE CORPS AIR STATION
SIZE - 48,000 SQUARE FEET
COST - $19 MILLION
COMPLETED - AUGUST 2011
This Design-Build project included the design and preparation of construction documents including specifications and construction administration services. Jeff Katz Architecture and TB Penick & Sons, Inc. were selected based upon a best value analysis of qualifications and price. The project involved the design of a new Applied Instruction Facility for the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona. The 48,000 square foot facility includes classrooms and a 200 seat Auditorium. Also included were instructor offices for the full time staff of 150 people. The facility includes a variety of secure data systems within the classroom and Auditorium spaces, as well as full audio-visual design. The design was developed in a manner to allow construction activities to proceed adjacent to the existing, operational facility, without effecting on-going operations. Project plans were developed in Revit, allowing for complete BIM modeling of the facility in house.
