This design-build project with JP Harvey Engineering Solutions renovated a 115,894 SF, two-story facility in support of the Joint Coalition Suffolk Cyber Team. The primary use of the J-9 facility included office space, communication spaces and support spaces. Most of the interior finishes were updated as part the overall renovation. The existing HVAC system in the one-story portion of the facility consisted of 32 small rooftop units which were replaced by two large variable air volume rooftop units. The building implanted a barrier-free, ADA accessible design. Portions of the ceiling grid were replaced and all the acoustical ceiling tile on the first was newly installed. The project was not required to achieve LEED certification, however, as part of best practices, sustainable design concepts were incorporated into the project to the maximum extent allowed by the project budget.
