Repair Air Traffic Control Tower Building 118
Location: NAS Jacksonville, FL
Client: NAVFAC Southeast
EMR was responsible for the four-phase renovation of Building 118 to bring it into compliance with applicable codes and regulations. Selective demolition included drywall and metal stud framing; vinyl composition tile; acoustical ceiling tile; windows; concrete masonry units, as necessary, to allow for the installation of structural members; guardrail/handrail; and roof planes. Repairs included replacing the HVAC system; repairing the electrical system; and refurbishing interior finishes, lighting, and exterior finishes. Work also included new state-of-the-art equipment in the control tower and below the cab observation level to meet requirements established by the National Airspace System Modernization Program and FAA standards. Building 118 remained in operation during all phases of this project.
