Central Utility Plant (CUP) - Structural & Architectural Package
MULE worked with a large Engineering Firm to build a new office complex with three separate buildings for a large Aerospace Contractor on the east coast. This new facility provides a new Center of Excellence in the area, providing space for an additional 1,900 personnel in the Melbourne area. MULE’s portion of this project was the shell for the 12700 sf Central Utility Plant, CUP. The CUP was a mechanical utility plant that will hold three cooling towers equaling 1200 tons along with the equipment to generate chilled water for two buildings being constructed with a total square footage of 500,000 sq ft. The project was built for a large Aerospace Contractor in Melbourne FL. MULE is building the foundations, slabs, structural steel, roofing, interior finishes, paint, caulking, waterproofing, and a hurricane louver system. The project was accelerated with extremely aggressive milestones.
VA Lake Baldwin Medical Center - Roofing and Flooring
MULE Engineering & Construction removed the existing roof and laid new torch applied modified bitumen roof on buildings 504 and 519a at the Orlando VA Medical Center. Tapered insulation and manufacturer flashing and accessories were installed, and all roof penetrations addressed. The lightning protection system for building 504 was upgraded in accordance with Florida Building Code, NFPA and IEEE standards. To avoid disrupting the employees with project noise and odor, the project was completed during off-hours, and a snorkel was built on the roof air intake to funnel clean air to the building and prevent noxious air from entering the building. In addition, new heavy duty rubber stair treads were installed in all the medical center stairways and new commercial vinyl composite tile laid in at each landing. The stairwell and landings were completed during WHEN hours to limit impact on patients and employees, and Class II infection control measures were employed to mitigate any fugitive dust and debris. Strict interim life safety measures were followed during each work shift to avoid any impedance of fire-related egress, and maintain all fire-safety features. Waste management practices were employed outside the buildings to minimize spillage and reduce egress barriers, and inside the medical center to minimize fugitive dust through tightly contained trash and clean trash transport.
