Naval Air Station Pensacola DB RFP Development for Hurricane Sally Recovery

Naval Air Station Pensacola DB RFP Development for Hurricane Sally Recovery

Returning a vital naval air station to full operation.

NAS Pensacola, situated on the Florida Gulf Coast, is a bustling naval air station, employs more than 16,000 military and 7,400 civilians as well as houses the headquarters for Naval Education Training Command. When the base was hit by Category 2 Hurricane Sally, a drawn-out repair process was not an option. To assess and repair the damage on a tight schedule, PRIME AE completed a fast-track project under a single task-order to perform storm damage assessments, determine Design-Build repair scopes of work, and develop repair procurement documents for 89 damaged buildings.

The timeline wasn’t the only challenge PRIME AE faced. Thirty-six of the damaged buildings were historic, requiring special SHPO consulting. The damage also occurred during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, necessitating additional health and safety measures monitored by the government and CDC on the federal property.

To overcome all of the challenges and complete the large-scale project on schedule, it was essential for our team to develop a true partnership with NAVFAC. Consistent daily communication with NAVFAC and NAS Pensacola staff, effective project management, a strong QA/QC program and creative project staffing allowed our team to complete all milestones on schedule. We quickly assembled a large, experienced group of multi-disciplined professionals, primarily through in-house resources. Five separate design teams worked concurrently to develop the 89 RFP documents. Despite the aggressive schedule, broad scope of work, and changing requirements, PRIME AE successfully partnered with our client to complete the project on time and return the vital naval air station to full operation.
