Part of team that assisted military installation public works departments in the inspection, condition assessment, condition prediction, service life development and prediction, project development, and development and execution of capital improvement and/or maintenance and repair work plans of their public infrastructure.
Part of a team that developed a computerized Engineered Management Systems/Sustainment Management Systems called BUILDER and implementation of others called RAILER, PAVER, ROOFER for use by military installation public work department to plan and execute maintenance and repair projects of their public infrastructure.
Part of a team that 'closed' 26 military installations by inspecting the infrastructure, developing preliminary scopes of work and cost estimates using R.S. Means for infrastructure projects that could aid in future economic growth. Briefed Senior Department of the Army officials on results.
Part of a team that performed condition assessment/structural assessment/historic assessment of several historic structures. Developed projects with preliminary drawings in AUTOCAD, scope of work, and cost estimates to improve the condition within standards determined by the State Historic Preservation Officer or to demolish the facility.
Designed the electrical distribution system upgrade for USAG-Fort Detrick and USAG-Forest Glen. Reviewed the electrical distribution upgrade for part of Tooele Army Depot.
Part of a team that researched and developed standardized construction designs for Theater Construction Management System (TCMS) for deployed service members during contingency operation that require Base Camps/Forward Operating Bases (FOB's)/Contingency Bases. Designs include development of AUTOCAD drawings, bill of materials, cost estimates, construction crew type, size, and times, and required construction equipment.
Design issues include applicable codes, sustainment/LEED, electrical production and distribution, water storage and distribution, storm water collection, safety, security, transportation, and optimizing site layout for best efficiency. Drew in AUTOCAD, designed, and inspected the construction of a small FOB at CERL in order to do research projects.
Part of a team that worked with government agencies to develop facility improvements that owners could do to improve their facilities that would decrease the amount of damage in case of natural disasters.
