Project Cost

DiGeronimo is Architect of Record for the Design-Build Aviation Brigade Vehicle Maintenance Facility (VMF) for the Aviation Brigade at Fort Drum, New York. The facility consolidates units at one location, close to the airfield. The project includes 88 work bays and five administrative areas in two major buildings. In addition, the project includes organizational storage buildings, unit storage buildings, and Class IV storage buildings.

DiGeronimo completed all documentation for the architectural design for all project buildings and prepared the design for interior spaces, including submission of color boards.

This project was designed to maximize the use of the sustainable design and development practices. This project was awarded the Bronze Certification under US Army Corps of Engineers Sustainable Project Rating Tool (SpiRit). This was the precursor to LEED certification.

Support facilities by Team Engineers included sewers, potable water, fire protection, sanitary wastewater pump station, electric service, fire protection and alarm systems, paving, security fencing and lighting, information systems, and site improvements. Hot water from natural gas fired boilers provides heating.

Site development included grading, drainage, paving for parking and drives, and fencing. Site preparation includes the demolition of an existing concrete wall and the removal of existing construction debris and rubble. Also included is the extension of utility systems to the VMF site from connections to existing systems at the airfield.
