Government   /  Whiteman AFB, AE1 / AE3 Services

The Defense Health Agency (DHA) and the Services (Army, Navy, Air Force) utilizes the Integrated Design-Build-Initial Outfitting (iDBIO) MATOC to execute its health facility restoration, modernization and outfitting program(s). DHA/Service and the USACE require the services of a qualified 3rd Party Architect-Engineer firm (AE3) to provide support and conduct technical reviews for the duration of the iDBIO contract. Altus, as the AE3 is providing timely reviews of design and construction submittals/shop drawings, and in essence is providing those reviews on behalf of the Government.

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.
