San Antonio, TX
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District selected Satterfield & Pontikes Construction as the Design-Build team offering the best value for work on an interior demolition and renovation project on historic Building 2791 at Fort Sam Houston. S&P won this important project based on the comprehensive team assembled and its demonstrated ability to deliver this challenging project.
S&P used Building Information Modeling to develop 3-D models of the existing architectural and structural components. The architect then used the S&P-generated models to create the renovation drawings.
• The interior of the three-story building was completely gutted and rebuilt without altering the exterior of the historic building, initially constructed in 1930.
• The interior demolition was performed to meet federal requirements for progressive collapse, including the fiber wrapping of all concrete columns, beams and slabs.
• The barracks will house 284 soldiers in 142 two-person living areas.
• The basement of the building was redesigned to serve as Fort Sam Houston’s medical battalion headquarters.
