Repair Behavioral Health Building 9924B

(Fort Lewis, WA)

KB repaired Building 9924B Behavioral Health Clinic, a single story wood frame structure with brick façade that was constructed in 1945 and is considered of historical significance by the Fort Lewis historical preservation. This building had largely been left in its original condition, with only limited systems upgrades throughout its life span. With few exceptions, most of the building systems were failed or failing and beyond service life. KB provided a complete repair and modernization of Building 9924B, which entailed close involvement with the end user and facilities department, as any repair work, specifically to the exterior, had to preserve the building’s historical appearance. To expedite repairs to the building, KB utilized a transition space for the staff to conduct daily operations in, allowing us to work within the building unencumbered by business occupancy.

The objective of this project was for JJKSP to perform a complete repair and modernization of building 9924B, while maintaining the historical appearance of the structure. Architectural and structural interior renovation work was completed, following KB’s approved design. An extension was also completed for the building to add more square footage. New mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems were installed with associated future tie-in work installed for the building. Electrical revision work was completed at the panels separating buildings 9924A & 9924B. Future space was made available for Communications room tie-in to the adjacent and identical Building 9924A, which KB also renewed.
