Medical Facilities - Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization

Since 2007 SES has been providing construction services to the Department of Defense's Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization (SRM) program by delivering design-build projects at over 60 military medical facilities throughout the United States and overseas. Projects consist of building envelope repairs and mechanical/electrical upgrades that also incorporate energy conservation and 'green' initiatives.

 

Building envelope repair projects typically include:

  • Roof replacements and repairs
  • Exterior building (re-pointing brick, re-caulking, refacing) and structural repairs
  • Force protection upgrades for windows and doors

Mechanical and electrical upgrade projects include:

  • Replacement of boilers, chillers, cooling towers, air handling units, sterilizers etc.
  • Replacement and re-insulation of ductwork
  • System balancing and installation of digital controls
  • Upgrades to primary and secondary plumbing piping
  • Bathroom upgrades to meet American Disabilities Act requirements
  • Upgrades and replacement of primary and secondary electrical services
  • Improvements to the efficiency and reduction of electricity, steam, water and gas consumption
Featured Projects

INFRASTRUCTURE REPAIRS AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT (irem) – Keesler AFB, Mississippi
A $32 million contract for IREM upgrades that included replacement or repair of inefficient HVAC systems, electrical panel systems, 300,000 square feet of old roof and exterior facades. A follow-up $7 million mechanical upgrades contract included an overhaul of elevator controls, a building automation system replacement, and repair and recommissioning of all exhaust systems at the one million sq. ft. Keesler Medical Center.

STEAM BOILER UPGRADES – Osan Air Base, South Korea
Fuel usage in the hospital at Osan was reduced by more than 50% and SES's project manager was coined by a four-star General for successfully achieving the upgrade without an outage.

HVAC REPLACEMENT IN DENTAL CLINIC – Shaw AFB, South Carolina
Entire replacement of the facility's HVAC system while maintaining full mission capacity in the dental clinic. SES replaced the facility's only central station AHU and the existing 34 VAVs serving the dental treatment rooms.

ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES – Andrews AFB, Maryland
Successive contracts since 2007 to perform electrical infrastructure renovations at the main hospital including replacement of 9 HVAC units and a structural evaluation on an ageing timber-framed roof to identify deficiencies and damage to roof trusses caused by additional load in the building. SES repaired and improved the electrical service entrance and emergency power system at the Malcolm Grow Medical Center  including the installation of a programmable logic controller with digital speed control and automatic load sequencing.

ROOFING SYSTEM DESIGN AND INSTALLATION – McConnell AFB, Kansas
Designed a 95,100 sq. ft. standing seam metal roof system, repaired the low roof sections and applied Energy Star coating, installed metal wall panels, cleaned and sealed the brick veneer walls and stripped out all existing caulk joints to provide a new building envelope system
