Fisk San Antonio Making the Largest Even Larger
The US Army has held presence in San Antonio since 1845 when it repaired the Alamo structure and added a roof to allow its use as a headquarters. In 1876 the Army began migration to the present site of Fort Sam Houston. The site has grown to nearly 3,000 acres today and contains more than 900 buildings. In 1975, the post was designated a National Landmark. In fact, it is the largest collection of historic structures at any US Army base.
At the end of the Second World War, the Army decided to make Fort Sam Houston the principal medical training facility for the Army. Today, Fort Sam Houston is the largest and most important military medical training facility in the world. Fisk San Antonio is actively involved in the construction of three more buildings at the Post.
A design/build team including Saterfield & Pontikes (GC), Burns McDonald (AE firm), and Fisk Electric was selected to provide these new facilities. The Primary Care Clinic will contain 132,000 square feet to house the examination area, radiology rooms, pharmacy, laboratory, food shop, and numerous conference areas. A LEED Silver Certification is the goal for the project. Fisk San Antonio will provide design input along with the actual installation of the fire alarm, card access system, CATV raceway, Data infrastructure, and all the electrical installation. Completion is scheduled for 2011.
Located just blocks away, The Medical Education and Training Campus Buildings 3 and 4 are being designed and built by the same design/build team. The buildings will contain 193,000 square feet and 252,000 square feet respectively. These buildings will be used to facilitate training for basic and specialized medical education for members of the Army, Navy, and Air Force. Building 3 will house surgical training suites, radiological training suites, laboratory training rooms, and classrooms. Building 4 will house an auditorium with a theatrical lighting system, a television studio, classrooms, and training laboratories. Silver LEED certification is also the target for these two buildings.
Fisk is providing design input and the actual competed electrical systems for these buildings which includes extensive modeling and coordination using building information modeling (BIM). Fisk and the other team members have used the BIM process to save time, identify conflicts, and significantly improve the coordination process. Completion date is August 2010.
Fisk San Antonio Lights Up New Headquarters
Tesoro is Spanish for treasure. Tesoro Corporation has been a San Antonio treasure since it was founded in 1968. Fisk Electric enjoys a long term relationship with Tesoro involving a broad range of electrical services from replacing ballasts and receptacles to multi-floor reconfigurations, build-outs, and the full electrical construction of Tesoro’s off campus World Data Center including redundant UPS systems and standby power generation equipment. Fisk Preconstruction services for the Data Center involved scheduling, constructability issues, and value engineering to reach budget goals.
As part of a methodic growth plan, Tesoro announced acquisition of land for a corporate campus and construction of a new headquarters building. Fisk was selected as the electrical contractor for the project that includes a 30-acre tract that is a part of a 120-acre site the Patrinely Group, LLC is developing. Tesoro’s Phase 1 includes three buildings, the 14-floor South Tower, the 6-floor East Tower, and a 850,000 square foot structured parking garage. The total square footage of the new office buildings is over 600,000 square feet. In addition to office and conference space, there will be a full kitchen/dining facility and a fitness center for Tesoro’s employees.
Harvey Builders was selected as the General Contractor. Gensler is the Architect and I.A. Naman + Associates is the Engineering firm. Preparations were made to begin work on the site in October of 2007 with Farrel Massey as Sr. Project Manager. Farrel leads the electrical installation team for this site that includes Mike Southard, Senior Project Manager; Pat Patterson, Senior Project Manager; and Chris McCort, Assistant Project Manager and over 100 IBEW Local 60 electricians.
The Tesoro Campus has been designed to achieve a Silver LEED Certification and completion was achieved in June of 2009.
