Location: Schofield Barracks, Oahu, Hawaii

RMA was the prime contractor for the fast-tracked design-build repair/renovation of historical Building 692, the Senior Enlisted Quarters (SEQ) for the 22,100 SF Interim & Wounded Warriors in Transition Unit barracks, at the U.S. Army’s Schofield Barracks in Hawaii. RMA’s primary features of work included demolition, window replacement, mechanical and electrical upgrades, restroom conversion/upgrade for ADA compliance, flooring replacement, and turf restoration and hydro-seeding. RMA also installed acoustical ceilings, communication and data equipment/closed circuit TVs, fire hydrants, parking lots, concrete curbs, ADA metal ramps, fire sprinkler systems, and toilets and showers. All work conformed to historic preservation requirements in coordination with architectural historians and the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).

RMA self-performed 100% of the electrical scope, including a complete system change-out and upgrade including installation of a new stainless steel main transformer. Additional work included two telecommunication rooms, new switchgears and underground duct banks, a mass notification system, telephone system, and fire alarm system. RMA replaced the main transformer, installed all new duct banks with new feeder wires, installed a new switchgear and distribution panels, and installed all new interior conduit to service every room with power and lighting.

Sustainable Design: This project’s goal was to achieve maximum LEED credits based on the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Build Reference Guide. Although submitting for the certification was not required, the Team’s design analysis established opportunities to attain 28 points to meet LEED Certified criteria. The credits were reviewed and documented by a LEED Accredited Professional. Efficient mechanical, electrical, and plumbing applications were designed and installed to provide low life-cycle cost, without sacrificing comfort or functionality.
