Construction of Munitions Igloo, Edwards Air Force Base, CA
US Navy; Construct as Designed, Firm Fixed Price, $600K

This construction project was the initial installation of a prototype for a new generation of earthen pre-cast concrete munitions bunkers. The new munitions bunker is designed to direct the products of combustion caused by inadvertent detonation, through the roof by slowly releasing the interior pressures. The pre-cast sections of the bunker were purchased from the manufacturer and shipped to the site. All of the foundation work had to be installed to meticulous tolerances to ensure that the bunker would perform as designed. An engineer from the bunker manufacturer was on-site continuously through construction to provide quality control observations and reports back to the manufacturer.

Work consisted of the demolition of an existing bunker, over-excavation and recompaction of soil, cast in place spread footings, installation of the new bunker components, waterproofing, backfilling and compaction of the earth around the new bunker. A new electrical system was also installed in the bunker. Explosion proof lighting and fire detection/alarm systems were also installed in the new munitions bunker.
