St. Louis — Wiegmann Associates has completed Design/Build heating, ventilation, air conditioning and plumbing work as part of a $25 million modernization project at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in Oak Harbor, Washington. Wiegmann served as the HVAC & plumbing design build contractor and Engineer of Record (EOR) on the project. The Korte Company was the general contractor.
The 74,000-square-foot project at the U.S. Navy’s premier Pacific Northwest naval aviation installation included the renovation of a 43,000-square-foot hangar and administrative building; and construction of a new adjoining 31,000-square-foot, two-story addition. Together, the renovation and addition provided space for maintenance, building support, squadron tactics and administrative offices to accommodate the Navy’s EA-18G Growler aircraft and squadrons. The energy-efficient facility is expected to achieve LEED Silver Certification by the US Green Building Council (USGBC).
Wiegmann’s scope of work included HVAC, plumbing and radiant heat systems, and high- and low-pressure air systems to deliver compressed air throughout the facility and the flight line for tools, work stations, aircraft cooling and pressure testing. They removed an existing steam and two-pipe heating system, retrofitted the existing two-story office building with a new HVAC system, and renovated plumbing throughout the building.
