A New Building for Citizens Bank and Trust (216)

Construction of the Citizens Bank & Trust in Guntersville, Alabama was unique in that it was started approximately 8 years earlier by another local bank and was abandoned in the early stages of structural development. Our initial task was to assess the existing concrete structure and modify it to accept the entirely new construction requirements per the current owners and architects.

This project was similar in square footage, contained new construction as well as renovation. This project included rooftop pavers as well as seating area much like one required for this project.

Extensive excavation work with an elaborate underground storm water detainment system and numerous retainer walls were installed to encompass the 2-acre site bordering State highways on each side and a city street on one end. ALDOT guidelines were followed closely in construction of the entrances, merge lanes, exits, turn lanes, striping and all appropriate signage. Heavy duty concrete and over 60,000 square feet of asphalt paving were used to create parking spaces for over 70 employees and customers. Sidewalks, ADA compliant ramps, concrete curbs & gutters, islands, ornamental fencing, lavish landscaping with an automated irrigation system incorporate the entire 96,000 square feet of property.

Selective demolition of certain foundation areas were necessary prior to structural composition which included additional concrete footings and foundations, structural steel framing, steel stud walls and steel roof trusses.

Exterior components consisted of brick, pre-cast stone veneer, glass masonry units, fiber cement siding trim, EIFS, aluminum wood clad windows, FRP columns, FRP window and door headers/surrounds and a pre-fabricated cupola atop the 65’ roof peak.

Interior construction consisted of painted gypsum board walls, acoustical ceilings, formed metal linear ceilings, carpet tile, ceramic tile floors and accents, steel and solid core wood doors, aluminum clad wood doors, full view glass office dividers and doors. Solid wood casework, laminated casework and granite countertops were installed in various offices, restrooms and kitchen spaces. Steel stairways with concrete treads and a hydraulic elevator access all three floors of the 36,000 square feet of administrative area.

Additionally, there is an open outdoor patio space covering 2,200 above the drive-through teller lanes with a spectacular view overlooking Lake Guntersville featuring large landscaped seating areas for entertaining and special functions.

Typical Fire suppression, Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical was also incorporated along with an emergency generator and all rough-ins for bank teller systems and vaults.

U.S. Navy – Wellness Center Renovation (203)

Renovate Fitness and Wellness Center Building 499 at this Navy Base. This consisted of renovating approximately 45,000 square feet of existing building to bring it up to new modernized standards. This entailed abating ACM (asbestos containing materials), major demolition package including mechanical, plumbing and electrical demolitions. Portions of the existing building was once used as a kitchen and dining facility in the past, which left existing mechanical hoods and major ductwork and electrical systems to be removed. It also entailed major floor demolition due to the existing quarry tile and thick set mortar beds. Existing walls were concrete masonry units with applied ceramic tile walls with plaster lathed ceilings.

Removal and installation of new ceramic tile floors in the locker rooms, sauna, and steam rooms were required. Three new restroom facilities were installed to bring them up to ADA compliance. A new area was renovated for a family member area with a designated area for a toddler area. The fire alarm as well as the fire sprinkler systems was upgraded to accommodate the new remodeled areas. A new handicapped ramp was installed on the Northeast corner of the building to comply with ADA standards.

DeKalb County Board of Education – Plainview School Renovation (201)

Plainview School in Rainsville Alabama is operated by the Dekalb County Board of Education and is a K through 12 School. In April 2011 the school was hit by a tornado and major destruction occurred at this campus. Carmon Construction, Inc. was awarded the contract of this renovation project, which consisted of 65,000.00 square feet of area. This project was very similar in complexity to the North Public Safety Complex in that it included similar square footage. This project was not a new construction however it did contain new finishes and in many areas new structural items.

Renovations for the Plainview High School required a new roof. Once the roof was replaced, we started our part of the renovation work. This consisted of removing all furniture, ceilings, light fixtures, cabinetry, doors, marker and tack boards and years of added communication wiring and devices. When all the furnishings and damaged materials were removed from the building interior, we started the asbestos abatement of the floor tile. Since the building had multiple wings a decision was made to phase the project into seven areas. Minor structural damages were discovered during the renovation and had to be repaired as not to compromise the structural integrity of the building. As the subcontractors were completed in their assigned areas they would move into the next area, thus allowing the work to flow in a systematic flow. Once the ACM was removed and clearance was obtained, we started the environmental procedures. Again, this was a major mold remediation for the entire building. When this was achieved, an encapsulate of primer was applied to all areas of the building from the roof deck down to and including the floors. The corridor walls were updated to achieve a one hour assembly.

The required new systems that were installed included lighting package, fire alarm, data and security systems. The new finishes included painted walls, new doors and hardware, casework for all classrooms, new marker and tack boards, new vinyl composition floor tiles, windows and ceilings. This project was successfully completed without interruption of students and faculty allowing them to use the cafeteria and a battery of restrooms within the renovated facility.

NASA – Stennis Space Center Renovations (196)

Our contract included a new metal building addition which was approximately 1,000 s.f. for the administration offices, as well as the addition of an interior 1,000 s.f. structural steel mezzanine with a non-composite floor slab. The mezzanine was laid out to accommodate new office and storage areas. The new metal building addition required the installation of a TPO roof. This area was in the back of the existing facility and was used for new administration offices including a new kitchen-break room facility. CCI performed the majority of the demolition on site, some of the items were: saw-cutting and removing asphalt and concrete slab, and removing the metal sheathing on the existing metal building. The existing metal panels were removed so a new three thick insulated metal panel system could be installed. A new mechanical system which included a new boiler and new air handling units was installed. A New emergency generator was also installed. CCI installed major floor slab reinforcement so the new 12 inch thick floor slab would be able to support the new high density filing systems. CCI installed doors and hardware, toilet partitions and accessories as well as built a structural steel mechanical shack and smoking area. CCI subcontracted out the electrical and mechanical portion of the contract.

This area also includes a spacious storage area for dry food storage with shelving and racks included.

The dinning area adequately will dine four hundred students and faculty at one setting. The finishes are unique in the way the ceiling systems include acoustical clouded areas to show multidimensional planes and elevations. Lighting fixtures are suspended from aircraft cables to break the monotonous of standard ceiling fixtures.

The exterior walls are made up to include large storefront windows to allow enormous natural lighting to the interior to add to the open areas. The floor is a polymer system poured with layouts systematic with the radios at the front of the building. The exterior facade consisted of cast stone; brick, aluminum storefront and fiberglass molded stepped soffit system.

The building included three towers at the front corners and main entrances. Just off the front radios of the building a four-tiered amphitheater was constructed for school functions and assemblies. The landscaping consisted of common sodded areas for student activities. The main drive entrances would accommodate several buses at the same time for student arrival and departure from school.
