Alert Crew Quarters

Location: Otis Air National Guard Base, Mass.

Client: National Guard Bureau

Completion Date: 2008

As a part of its Nationwide Vertical Construction IDIQ Contract, Burns & McDonnell provided design services to develop a 6,500-square-foot Alert Crew Quarters to house aircraft pilot and maintenance personnel on alert status. The Alert Crew Quarters is in close proximity to provide adequate response to the mission and within a secure perimeter.

The Alert Crew Quarters include offices, recreational space, kitchen/dining area, lockers and sleeping quarters with adequate levels of sound attenuation. The Alert Crew Quarters included sitework to provide appropriate demolition of paving and utilities that were within area, utility services (sanitary, domestic water, fire suppression water supply, natural gas, power and communications), and a secured perimeter. Access into the facility required the construction of a Guard House with utility service.

In addition to the work associated with the Alert Crew Quarters, the project also included phased construction of two complete 6,860-square-foot single bay F15 Aircraft Alert Shelters with fire suppression system in the shelter and the associated portland cement concrete apron paving.
