Relocate Entry Control Gate 26A
Pond, in a joint venture, developed the Design-Build RFP for a new 2,000-square-foot gatehouse, truck inspection facility, canopy, and ballistic-rated guard kiosk compliant with Department of Defense UFC (Unified Facilities Criteria) and SDDCTEA Pamphlet 55-15. The RFP covered excavation, pavement, fencing reconfiguration, a new gate, force protection measures, lighting, generator infrastructure, HVAC, water, sewer, communications, and power requirements for the entry control facility (ECF). It also entailed the demolition of the existing traffic check house and truck inspection facility. Relocation of Gate 26A was necessary to align with mission requirements. The new ECF features vehicle inspection bays, offices, holding areas, restrooms, and a military working dog room. It incorporates ballistic-rated glass and security measures to control incoming traffic and passengers. The site includes active and passive barriers to enhance security. The project addressed queuing issues to prevent truck backups on public roadways. Coordination among stakeholders from various agencies was crucial. A new roadway with a traffic light was constructed to connect the highway with the entrance gate. Collaborating with stakeholders and defining responsibilities ensured project success. The design team ensured compliance with the Intelligence Community. Directive (ICD) 705 for the interview room, minimizing penetrations through secure perimeter walls and providing proper grounding for piping. Designs aimed for LEED Silver certification, incorporating sustainable features such as split system direct expansion HVAC units, low-flow plumbing, and solar domestic hot water, aligned with energy conservation guidelines.
