This project consists of design and construction of one new building in Area A2 of Jackson Barracks, New Orleans, Louisiana. The approximately 41,500 SF building will replace functions of several buildings destroyed by Hurricane KATRINA, and is currently programmed as a two story building with a 20,750 SF footprint. The new construction of steel frame, slate roof and brick veneer exterior with light commercial framed interior spaces and building systems is expected to be compatible with the other new buildings at Jackson Barracks. Spaces required in this new building include: administrative offices, conference rooms, laundry facilities, recreation areas, storage, and typical housekeeping as well as MEP spaces. There is a limited amount of parking, paving and general site work involved; however, the building location is within a historic area of Jackson Barracks that is potentially archeologically sensitive and will require coordination with the Louisiana Military Department if discoveries are found during the project. This project will be funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and their participation and oversight is to be expected during all phases of design and construction of the project. The designer shall prepare and submit all required drawings to Facility Planning and Control in AutoCAD Release 2000 and/or latest Release.
