The HFS Team provided comprehensive A-E services to Ft. Jackson Resident Office in South Carolina. HFS offered the expertise of two senior construction inspectors, one senior HVAC senior construction inspector, one contract administrator, and one scheduler. Their services included quality assurance, construction management, and construction inspection support.

One of our team’s supported projects was the new $27M Pierce Terrace Elementary School. In this project, the expanded Pierce Terrace, now 40% larger at 73,942 SF, serves up to 325 students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades on Ft. Jackson military installation. Thanks to HFS, the school now holds Silver certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). It features unique elements such as movable partitions, a butterfly garden, an outdoor learning amphitheater, and an energy dashboard. This dashboard, doubling as a teaching tool, monitors each classroom’s utility use, turning energy conservation into a friendly student competition. Students compete for who can use the least amount of energy.

Additionally, HFS supported the critical Legion Lake Dam repair project for Ft. Jackson Resident Office. This $5M design-bid-build (D-B-B) project repaired both upper and lower Legion Lake dams. The work involved partial excavation of existing embankments, construction of a concrete labyrinth spillway (upper), earthen channel spillway (lower), and extension of an existing spillway outlet pipe (lower). Our team conducted contract drawing and specification reviews, site quality assurance (QA), and inspections of embankment fill placement, rebar, formwork, sand filter material, and drain piping. Moreover, we performed QA testing for compaction, concrete installation, and concrete testing.
