Our Residential Division has taken a lead in providing residential construction services, focusing primarily on Tenant Fit Outs, Residential Remodels, and Modular Home Construction beginning in 1999.
TOBYHANNA FIRE STATION CONSTRUCTION
A substantial portion of this project was New Construction, which included two additions for the mechanical/emergency generator rooms and the day room, complete with raised ridge roofing. The exterior walls for all sections, storefronts and windows were constructed to meet Anti-Terrorism Force Protection Requirements and given an EFIS finish. Special features of this building included the installation of a state of the art Fire Station Control and Monitoring System, LEED Silver Certifiable Construction, Green Globes US Compliant, and R-60 Building Envelope. Construction of Building 17 provided complete Fire Service Quarters for the Distribution Depot Tobyhanna and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The balance of the project consisted of demolition down to the structural steel, modification of site utilities. New features were added to meet current government standards, including new gypsum walls/ceilings, suspended acoustic tile ceilings, all new restrooms with showers, electrical distribution, HVAC systems, boilers, plumbing systems, new bunkrooms, kitchen, fire alarm/mass notification system, fire suppression, and EPDM roofing.
-LEJEUNE HALL WRESTLING
This Design/Bid/Build Project entailed the demo of old and the re-fit of the new – Wrestling Locker Rooms and Shower Facilities at US Naval Academy. This project included demolition, framing and drywall, ceilings, specialized flooring, extensive tile work, countertops, plumbing and electrical, as well as an HVAC upgrade to include a new air handling Unit. The project was executed on an academic campus, during the school year, with limited laydown and parking areas. The work required constant communication, and careful coordination, to ensure the Midshipmen could continue with their daily activities and have access to all areas of the campus at all times. The locker room schedule was coordinated with NAVFAC and the Naval Academy Athletic Association to minimize impact to the athletes. The work was scheduled to limit interference with the wrestling and swimming seasons. All utility shutdowns and hot work were scheduled in advance. All personnel were cleared for work on the Naval Academy grounds. The number of contractor vehicles with access to the site was limited, requiring coordination of crews and material. All deliveries were scheduled in advance and screened at security.
National Building Museum - Condenser
Water Pumps & Filter
In this Design/Bid/Build Project, Severn Associates replaced the existing condenser water system with six new condenser water pumps. The work required the electrical disconnect of each existing pump, and cleaning of sediment out of the basin, while allowing for the continuous operation of the condenser water system. Concurrently, with the pump work, we replaced the filter with a new Vortisand filter unit.
