About the project

As the successful bidder of this $10.6 million competitively bid lump sum project, Pala accepted the challenges of this schedule driven twelve month project. The scope included installation of roof top air conditioning equipment, a new breathing air system, and piping systems installed at a 60’ elevation in the 44 acre building. Scheduling and coordination of large subcontracts including electrical, instrumentation, insulation, sheetmetal ducting, and asbestos removal were critical to the overall project success.

Pala successfully met the project completion schedule, as well as achieving numerous milestone completion dates, despite significant delays due to the ongoing space shuttle tank fabrication operations.

Pala was also completing another $7 million of construction projects at the site currently with the Final Assembly Project.
