Government   /  Nellis AFB, Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center, Nellis AFB Medical Center Realignment

By utilizing an existing 5-year Indefinite Delivery Contract for A/E Services in Support   of the Healthcare Facilities Modernization Program with USACE-Little Rock, the Altus team is providing AE3 services to the government on multiple SRM projects. The team is responsible for monitoring contractor’s performance, ensuring standards for quality and cost are met. The AE3 package includes QA/QC services; specifically drawing and spec review, design calculation and scope verification, and onsite construction review. This includes conformance with NFPA codes, JACHO standards, UFC requirements and UFGS specification compliance.

The Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center is a 374,528 SF medical center built in 1992. The ongoing design-build project is executing a functional reconfiguration of the spaces, necessitated in part by the VA vacating the building. This MEDCON project is large and complex in nature, and a thorough understanding of the iDBIO SOW, NFPA Codes, JACHO Standards (Joint Commission), UFC 04-510-01, FGI Guidelines and USACE Quality Assurance Regulations including ER-1180-1-6 is critical. The AE3 team is viewed as an asset to the design-build team to ensure costly mistakes and change orders are avoided and potential issues are addressed proactively ahead of time. The combined specialties of the entire team bring a unique and comprehensive skill set to the project that otherwise might not be possible.
