Fort Leavenworth is a United States Army installation located in Leavenworth County, Kansas, in the city of Leavenworth, roughly 20 miles northwest of Kansas City. Built in 1827, it is the second oldest active United States Army post west of Washington, D.C., and the oldest permanent settlement in Kansas. Fort Leavenworth has been historically known as the “Intellectual Center of the Army.”
Fort Leavenworth selected GPW for a multi-year, multi-discipline Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract for Architect-Engineer services. GPW developed documents for maintenance, repair, and minor construction projects at Fort Leavenworth. The contract was accomplished by separate task orders with specific deliverables.
Examples of projects included: repair or replacement of mechanical, electrical or fire protection/detection systems, interior designs, renovation of historic structures, repair or replacement of infrastructure systems, correction of drainage problems, repair or upgrade of structural systems including seismic design and repair or replacement of architectural features (roofing, siding, windows, doors etc.).
As part of some projects, the abatement of hazardous materials including asbestos and lead paint were required. Work was accomplished on different types of facilities including administrative, housing, commercial, light industrial, correctional, educational and infrastructure support (roads, grounds, and utilities). Project scope of work involved the design of new buildings or structures utilizing the team’s experience in the application of integrated design techniques in the production of environmentally responsible and sustainable facilities, “green design” and force protection.
