  • HAFB - FY12 Academic Training Facility (ATF) and the Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD) Training Facility
    • This design/build White Sands Construction, Inc. project included the Design and construction of the FY12 Academic Training Facility (ATF) and the Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD) training facility at Holloman Air Force Base (HAFB) in Alamogordo, New Mexico. One new 1,391 total square meters (15,000 square feet) ATF and one new 831 total square meters (8,942 square feet) SEAD training facility is required to support the bed down of two squadrons of F-16 aircraft. Both facilities are administration, classroom and training oriented. The ATF includes approximately half of its area in a Special Access Program Facility (SAPF) space consisting of classrooms and briefing rooms; the area outside the SAPF space is mostly administrative/office functions. The SEAD facility is a completely SAPF building that includes classrooms, offices, training rooms, study room, and break room. Sitework includes a parking lot to the north that serves both facilities, and a sidewalk system that ties the facilities together. Utilities runs will be accessed primarily from Nighthawk Avenue to the east of the building site. The project scope includes landscaping and ATFP mitigation measures.
    • The buildings are being constructed of steel frames, steel roof purlins, and type B steel decking. The exterior walls are masonry with batt insulation in metal furring with interior painted drywall. The roofing is standing seam metal over drywall sheathing, with batt insulation below the steel deck. The insulation values were developed to support the development of a design that will meet the requirements for a LEED Silver certification by the USGBC. Interior finishes are primarily comprised of painted drywall partitions, acoustical board ceilings, and carpet tile or stained concrete flooring.
    • Unique Technical Feature
    • The Special Access Program Facility (SAPF) requires a Sound Transmission Class (STC) of 50 at the ceiling-roof assembly and at exterior perimeter walls and interior dividing walls. The interior walls are achieving this rating through a special mineral fiber blanket in the metal stud wall cavities. The exterior walls are achieving this rating primarily by the masonry walls. The ceiling-roof system is achieving the 50 STC rating by adding layers of drywall mass above the roof deck and below the steel purlins where no acoustical ceiling system is provided. All joints are sealed with acoustical sealant. SMPC acoustical consultant DL Adams of Denver along with our security consultant with URS collaborated with SMPC to establish this approach to meeting the requirements of this SAPF facility.
