About the Chapel Renovation
This project included the assessment of 14 buildings in active use, including Fairchild Hall, gymnasium, ice/basketball arena and the iconic USAFA Chapel Building. Building code, emergency exiting, Fire suppression, and door and hardware analysis was performed and coordinated with the Academy Fire Department. Unusual project conditions included 1) very high local winds that were damaging doors and causing building managers to block exit doors to save door and hardware replacement expenses, 2) the need for “American Only” clause replacement products and 3) analyzing buildings that were designed under 1960 building codes for modern code compliance.
Work included assessment and door/hardware replacements, fire suppression work, and education for building managers. Unit prices were developed so that the SABER contractors under contract could be contracted and proceed with the work quickly. The Air Force Academy and architect coordinated work schedules and visits to minimize disruptions to the facilities.
