The primary mission of Fort George G. Meade (FGGM) is to provide required services, infrastructure, a safe and secure community, and a quality of life that supports mission readiness and the Fort Meade community. This contract is to furnish and install the necessary infrastructure improvements and Modular Shipping Container Units (MSCU) to support a new ARMAG Extension Facility (AEF).
The AEF is required to meet ongoing operational requirements that includes daily weapons issuance. The contractor shall construct a concrete pad, furnish and install the MSCUs, install a free-standing walkway canopy between the AEF and an existing ARMAG vault, install communication lines and electric service to the MSCUs, and install electric lighting to illuminate the AEF exterior.
The Contractor is responsible for providing and installing two Modular Shipping Container Units (MSCU) to construct a single-story facility with dimensions of 40 feet in length and 16 feet in width. Detailed floor plan and feature requirements can be found in Figure 1 of section C.8 Attachment. The MSCUs must be equipped with power outlets, communication lines, and HVAC units. Additionally, one cabinet should be included to secure networking equipment.
The interior specifications consist of an 8-foot by 13-foot female locker room without windows, an 8-foot by 13-foot lieutenant’s office with one window, a 13-foot by 16-foot guard mount room with two exterior doors, and a 13-foot by 16-foot male locker room without windows. Each designated area should have the appropriate HVAC units, network ports, and phone ports as specified.
Regarding the installation process, the MSCUs should be placed and assembled on the concrete pad after the minimum concrete strength is achieved. However, this can only occur no sooner than 7 days following the concrete placement. The Contractor is also responsible for ensuring the electrical grounding of each MSCU, using ground rods with a minimum length of 6 feet.
For electrical power supply to the AEF, the Contractor is required to coordinate with BGE (Baltimore Gas and Electric) to determine the specific requirements that must be fulfilled by BGE. The Contractor shall provide, install, and connect a 240/120 V single-phase, 125 A electric service to the MSCU by tapping off the conductors on the load side of the service meter that presently supply power to the existing ARMAG 1 and ARMAG 2 vaults.
The installation of tap conductors should comply with NFPA 70 regulations. Furthermore, the Contractor must install approximately 80 feet of 4-inch diameter conduit for burying the electrical conductors, ensuring that the conduit vertically protrudes through the concrete slab at the location of the MSCU panel. Certification of the installation by a licensed master electrician or professional engineer is required before the system can be energized.
