Bagram Airfield (BAF), Afghanistan
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) – Philadelphia District
Client Needs and Requirements:
The electrical wiring in the 5400-square foot Brigade Headquarters building for the U.S. Army Materiel Command had been installed by previous contractors hastily and not to code, causing Life, Health, and Safety hazards for military personnel and civilians residing at or visiting the base.
USACE required complete re-wiring for the building, including replacing all of the lighting, receptacles, conduit, and panels and re-installing to meet U.S. National Electrical Code (NEC) standards.
Challenges and ISI’s Response:
This facility had to be upgraded while occupied and with minimal interruption to ongoing activities. In addition, the Period of Performance was very short – only 30 days.
ISI worked multiple crews to complete the majority of the disruptive work done overnight to minimize the impact on the soldiers and civilians working in the facility.
All of the upgrades were installed without major disruptions, the project was completed two days early and within budget.
ISI furnished all new equipment and wiring.
