To design, renovate and expand this critical use space and keep it fully operational as this is one of only two hyperbaric chambers on the island to treat decompression sickness.
This design-build project included demolition of the existing locker room, restroom, offices, and breakroom and the complete buildout of a new locker room, shower area, restrooms, breakroom, and office space on a strategic US Naval base in Guam. APC was responsible for the installation of moisture resistant/high impact GWB partitions on metal stud framing, non-sag paperless/moisture resistant gypsum board ceiling on metal stud framing with blanket thermal insulation and a non-skid ceramic floor tile with an anti-fracture waterproofing membrane. The renovation project also included the installation of all shower stalls, toilet partitions, toilet accessories, and plumbing fixtures. The project included extending the building’s structure to increase the locker room’s footprint and successfully and safely installing all subsequent interior buildout features including finishes, plumbing, mechanical, fire protection, and electrical systems. Most importantly, since the renovation was adjacent to one of the two hyperbaric chambers in Guam which remained operational throughout the duration of the project, APC’s crews remained flexible and adjusted schedules to accommodate use of the chamber and prioritize the Navy’s needs and mission.
