Cerrudo Services constructed a new two story, 3,880 SF expansion of the existing Coast Guard Base Gymnasium. The new exercise areas consisted of high quality architectural finishes and energy efficient features such as occupancy controlled indirect lighting fixtures. Demolition required a significant excavation of material to accommodate the construction of the new addition. Site work included new exterior stairs, ADA compliant ramps and walkways, and associated concrete retaining walls that connected to the adjoining gymnasium.
The addition consisted of a concrete foundation with a concrete slab on grade, exterior walls with stucco finish and aluminum framed exterior windows, a second story level constructed of wood joists and plywood substrate, and a built-up elastomeric roof, all matching the existing gymnasium construction. Interior work included cabinets for storage, working space and display, suspended acoustical ceilings, and resilient exercise mat flooring. The electronically controlled heating and ventilation in the exercise rooms consisted of a ducted supply and plenum return system. New electrical items included indirect fluorescent lighting, 20 amp duplex outlets, electrical panel, controls and expansion of the fire alarm system.
