Research Center Relocation | Project Profile

About the Client

There were multiple Middough on this project were due to its complexity. Middough clients on this project included: an independent space research center, a local metro city in the Midwestern United States, and the city’s port control department.

Scope of the Project

The project included the relocation of several new facilities to make way for a new local airport runway. 

Initial activities were focused on facilities that would fall within the restricted distance from the new runway location. The design priority and the schedule were then established to accommodate their relocation. Those facilities were the Day Care Center, the Fitness Center, the Picnic ground and outdoor recreation area, the Chemical Storage Building, the Nitrogen Fill and Contractor lay down areas.

Parallel activities were the engineering review and analysis of the existing facilities and laboratories. Their true value had to be established and budgets reviewed to set a functional project scope and a budget for each of the facilities in the program.

Services provided by Middough

Middough provided design engineering and construction administration services for this project. 

Program schedules were maintained by the PMT.  Middough provided the A/E design schedules.

Results Delivered to Client 

Teams comprised of Middough staff, enhanced by over fifteen sub-consultant companies, were formed to provide services for the non-PER and the PER projects. To maximize efficiencies, the team members had to be continuously engaged on meaningful phases of each project. 

With the budgets and scopes set, the engineering effort commenced in a planned and fast track mode.

On a phased approach, all buildings were designed and constructed, and the runway opened on time.
