The HFS Team provided two senior construction inspectors, one senior HVAC senior construction inspector, one contract administrator, and one scheduler to provide quality assurance, construction management, and construction inspection services support to the Ft. Jackson Resident Office in South Carolina.
One of the many projects our team supported was the new $27M Pierce Terrace Elementary School. The new Pierce Terrace is 40% larger (73,942 SF) than the original school and is the educational home for up to 325 pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students on the Ft. Jackson military installation. Thanks to HFS, the school is now Silver certified in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) and contains unique aspects, such as movable partitions, a butterfly garden, an outdoor learning amphitheater, and an energy dashboard. The energy dashboard acts as a bonus teaching tool, monitoring the utility use of each classroom while the students compete for who can use the least amount of energy.
HFS also supported the critical Legion Lake Dam repair project for the Ft. Jackson Resident Office. This $5M project was a design-bid-build (D-B-B) repair of both upper and lower Legion Lake dams. The work included the partial excavation of the existing embankments, concrete labyrinth spillway construction (upper), earthen channel spillway construction (lower), and the extension of an existing spillway outlet pipe (lower). Our team performed contract drawing and specification reviews, site QA, and inspections of embankment fill placement, rebar, formwork, sand filter material, and drain piping. We also performed QA testing of compaction, concrete installation, and concrete testing.
