December 17: An Iconic Renovation at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

TME Presents: An Iconic Renovation at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

Thursday, December 17, 2020 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT

Speakers:

Bill Richason, CQMC, Construction Project Manager, Stellar

Short Description:

Webinar Description

The Commissioned Officers’ Club at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego has hosted numerous events, meetings, and social gatherings since it was built in the 1950s. Most famously, it is the setting for the memorable scene in the 1986 film Top Gun in which the lead characters serenade their flight instructor. However, after more than 60 years, the famed club had lost a little “lovin’ feelin’” itself.

A $7.7 million design-build project renovated the main entrance and kitchen, as well as making a number of life-safety upgrades. Shortly after work got underway, though, priorities changed. Decades of unknown upgrades and unforeseen conditions made what may seemingly have been a straightforward project into a uniquely complex renovation—one that would showcase the flexibility available to the design-build process.

Key takeaways include:

  • Conducting a renovation that includes extensive seismic and life safety upgrades and alterations
  • Navigating a renovation project with extensive unforeseen conditions
  • Major renovation for key stakeholder groups and U.S. Army Installation Management Command
  • Addressing a stop work order due to owner/stakeholder reevaluation of fire protection installation concerns

   Facilities Management Workshop


“The mix of being able to get some continuing education, interact with other government folks and the private sector, and do so in formal, open and social settings: I know of very few (maybe no) other venues where you can get cross discipline interactions across the private and public sector in a variety of settings.
No one else does this.”

–Lawrence Schorr, 787th Civil Engineer Squadron, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.
