This new 45,000-square-foot school for the Department of Defense is a single-story, steel frame building housing two separate schools: MR "A" School and MR "C" School. After two days of site clearing, unsuitable soil was encountered along the west half of the site. After digging numerous test pits, JJH quantified the removal of 3,840 cubic yards of soil.
The 80% hands-on training facility trains approximately 150 students
each year. During the 11-week “A” school course, sailors
learn the basic techniques of repair work, maintenance, and overhaul
and operation of engine lathes, milling machines, drill presses,
and grinders. After graduation they go directly to the fleet to
put their skills to work. The “C” school course teaches
Computer Numerical Control (CNC).
“The construction of these facilities was a complex
structural, electrical and mechanical endeavor which your firm
eagerly undertook…Your entire project team’s performance
was superb…We look forward, with pleasure, to future contacts
with your firm.”
