Building 5376 Renovations | Barksdale Air Force Base, Louisiana
Client: Global Strike Command/Gibbs Construction
With Barksdale going through a change in command to the Global Strike Command, Building 5376 must also adjust to accommodate two new squadrons: the operational and administrative functions of the 26th Operational Weather Squadron and the 240th Weapons Squadron. This new mission required the entire building to be renovated including removing and reconstructing walls and security layers. Also included in the demolition and removal were utility, plumbing and mechanical system elements that no longer were functional or code compliant. The functional system elements needed to be replaced with the new building configuration. Issued as a Design/Build contract, Huitt-Zollars worked with Gibbs Construction and squadron/base personnel to further develop construction documents to meet the user requirements as well as ensure security throughout the building.
