Hillis-Carnes Provides Extensive Work for the Construction of Four New Buildings at Montgomery County’s Emergency Operations Center Campus – Totaling $35M
Hillis-Carnes was contracted by Montgomery County to provide Construction Materials Testing and Inspection Services for the construction of four new buildings at their Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in Eagleville, Pennsylvania, which currently is home to several functions, including the prison and Emergency Operations Center. The four buildings will consist of a new garage, warehouse, archives, and coroner building. Each building will be a stand-alone facility constructed on adjacent parcels of land. In total, the project includes the construction of 100,000 SF of buildings. The 35,000 SF garage and the 15,000 SF warehouse will cost $6 Million each, and the schedule for both is April 2021 to May 2022. The 25,000 SF coroner will cost $14 Million and is scheduled for July 2021 to August 2022. Lastly, the 24,000 SF archives building will cost $9 Million and is scheduled for September 2021 to September 2022.
A skilled and experienced crew, working under the supervision of Project Manager, Michael Platkin, and Principal Engineer, David Harmanos, P.E., was deployed to perform the extensive scope of work that is currently underway for this impressive development. Our scope of work includes the testing and inspections of mass grading/fill placement, utilities, spread footing foundations, cast-in-place concrete, reinforcing steel, floor flatness/levelness, structural steel, light-gauge structural framing, sprayed fireproofing, structural load-bearing masonry, and pavement. Joseph Roche and Jonathan Raimondo are serving as the Field Engineers on this project, while Matthew Cecchine is serving as the Lead Engineering Technician. Hillis-Carnes will also provide a building envelope inspector to inspect the installation of building envelope materials and applications. Our Envelope Consulting will consist of providing inspection services during the installation of the various Exterior Cladding Systems, including EIFS, ACM, CMP, Brick, and associated Air/Water Barrier Systems of below- and above-grade applications. This project is expected to be completed by fall 2022.
