Little Rock AFB Damage Assessments
Crafton Tull provided technical engineering support to a rapid damage assessment team responsible for providing the damage reports, repair estimates, planning, and programming necessary for executing storm damage repair efforts.
The assessment phase included the inspection of 67 structures and the preparation of eight structural assessments. The entire team thoroughly examined each facility. Our team then prepared and delivered a detailed report of the observed damages and a preliminary repair estimate to the Base Civil Engineering Staff. The information included in the damage assessment reports helped determine the funding source and execution strategy for each of the necessary repair projects. Following the assessment phase, our team assisted in preparing scopes of work and detailed repair estimates required for the award of permanent repair construction contracts. Each engineering discipline created detailed repair estimates using RS Means data compiled into an overall repair estimate using e4clicks software. Depending on the scale and complexity of the required repair, the team prepared the scope of work for a specific building or group of buildings for a particular method of contract procurement and award. The final phase of the project included answering contractor RFI's generated during the bidding process, coordinating and leading onsite contractor visits, and review analyzing contractor bid proposals.
