When Eglin Air Force Base in Florida needed new training facilities at Duke Field, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers turned to Thompson Engineering for fast-track service. In just 48 days from initial scope of work meetings, Thompson delivered a design/build RFP for seven buildings, including new construction and renovations. Thompson relied on an experienced team for quick turnaround services including site planning; civil, structural and geotechnical engineering; asbestos and lead based paint surveys; roadway and parking design; and landscaping. Our design and preliminary drawings included:
The project’s military connections also called for specific engineering knowledge such as DoD Antiterrorism Standards and International Building Code Standards. With smart design and planning from the start of the design/build process, work at Duke Field remained on track and on budget.
