In 2008, Heapy was retained by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Louisville District to write a Request For Proposal for the construction of two new 100,000 SF hangars at Fort Campbell, Kentucky as well as their enabling projects consisting mostly of sitework. The purpose of the new hangars was to facilitate maintenance and repair to rotary-wing aircraft. The facilities include parts and tool storage rooms as well as space for administrative operations, aviation operations and all support equipment and facilities.
It was determined early on, that there were both public and private utilities that were installed in areas of each of the New Hangar’s footprints that would need to be rerouted to accommodate the New Buildings.
Heapy worked with AT&T, USASOC (United States Army Special Operations Command) & the Fort Campbell Communications Group to devise a strategy that would minimize downtime as well as the infrastructure costs associated with the moving of the utilities including combining the utilities into a common ductbank.
The RFP was issued and awarded. Heapy reviewed the contractors designs and installation for compliance with the RFP, Preliminary Design & Associated Standards.
