TranSystems, as part of the M.A. Mortenson design-build team, is honored with the Design-Build Institute of America National Award of Merit in the industrial, process, and research facilities category for the U.S. Coast Guard project in Ketchikan, Alaska.
TranSystems served as overall Designer of Record for this $28M design/build project to support two Fast Response Cutters (FRC) to be homeported at USCG Base Ketchikan, AK. Two 110-foot Patrol Boats currently homeported in Ketchikan were replaced by the FRCs, thus requiring reconfiguration of existing infrastructure and facilities. The project included a two-story, 12,640 square foot combined Maintenance Augmentation Team and Hazardous Materials Storage (HAZMAT) Building.
The project was designed and constructed using USGBC LEED-NC 2009 requirements. Our design took into account the building orientation, thermal envelope, construction methods and materials to ensure highest level of energy performance.
During the design process, the design team focused on close coordination with USCG management, base personnel, approval agencies and the construction team.
