Project Goal

JCD reconfigured the interior of Building 263 at POM to ensure the facility could support the operations of an investigations unit out of Vandenberg AFB, CA.


JCD was tasked with the remodel of the interior of BG263 at the Defense Language Institute at Presidio of Monterey, CA, to support Operations of the US Air Force’s Office of Special Investigation (OSI) out of Vandenberg Air Force Base, CA. The primary objective of this project was to reconfigure the interior of the facility and situate/facilitate OSI’s personnel, equipment, and operations. Given the age of the building, JCD was required to perform extensive demolition of the walls, flooring, and ceiling with asbestos remediation being a priority prior to the build back of the flooring. About 3,200 square feet of open space were reconfigured/partitioned into separate rooms with each to serve a specific purpose to OSI. The evidence room received STC 50 doors (with programmable locks) and walls reinforced with 13-gauge flattened anti-penetration mesh prior to placing drywall. The armory received a vault door that required engineered structural reinforcement to ensure the floor sustained the weight of the door. The building was upgraded on electrical provisions and the ceiling grid system was restored to 100%. In addition to electrical, JCD supplied the building with a new server room and rack for data capability provisions. From this room, secured NMCI lines were routed through wall penetrations to the rear of the building and down into the basement that was being occupied by another governmental department. As this facility was to become functional space for base operations, JCD collaborated with future tenants and DPW from start to finish of the project.

The bulk of this project was performed with in-house personnel. The only trades outsourced to key subs were electrical, asbestos remediation and restoration of suspended ceiling.
