Past Performance

Supporting the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) in Fort Belvoir, VA. 

CFX partners were tasked to provide modernization construction services to Building 206. The building was originally constructed in 1920 as an army barracks, accordingly the building’s exterior was considered historic. CFX, with the use of exp Federal designs, was tasked with design, and demolition including abatement and renovation and construction management of the renovation. They provided Construction managers, Construction Superintendents, quality assurance professionals, and admin support personnel. The primary goal was to provide an Auditorium and office space layout that met the programmatic needs of the end user and to upgrade the building systems to meet current needs as a collaborative learning environment.

Supporting USACE in Fort Moore, GA

CFX partners, under their current USACE Savannah AE IDIQ contract, provided site survey, full IFC design, RFP creation and construction phase services for a major renovation to the MEDEVAC Hangar Building (2941) at Fort Moore. This facility houses predominantly Blackhawk helicopters and associated equipment used for medical rescue missions. Because of the critical nature of the mission, the building had to remain operational throughout the design and construction phases of the project. The main feature of the renovation was to install a high expansion foam fire suppression system in the facility. Before the renovation, the hangar was only protected with two deluge sprinkler systems – each protecting half the hangar. The change to the foam suppression system led to considerable necessary alterations to electrical and mechanical systems.

Supporting USACE in Fort Bliss, Texas

CXF provided on-site construction phase services for a new hospital replacement at Fort Bliss, Texas, including personnel to perform onsite assistance and guidance to the field office.  USACE tasked CXF with providing onsite project management to provide administrative support, review of contract documents and submittals, onsite interpretation of plans and specifications, and evaluation and expertise of construction for conformance with applicable building codes and contract requirements. Due to the expertise of their onsite team, CXF was tasked with providing daily evaluation of construction methods and materials, evaluation of job site safety, and evaluation of construction progress.
