Install Ground Source Heat Pumps and Renovate Dormitories

WA Patriot installed ground source heat pumps to support heating in one Dormitory building, and support both heating and cooling in a second Dormitory building in Bremerton, WA. Steam-to-hot water converters were replaced with water-to-water heat pumps supplying lower temperature hot water via a ground source water loop in vertical wells.

Project also repaired and replaced aged, damaged and deteriorated facility components, added improvements to bring the facility up to current national life safety, accessibility, building code and barracks standards; and increased its useful life as a quality Dormitory facility.

Olympia Country & Golf Club, Phase II

WA Patriot performed this design-build project consisting of a 4,500 sf Clubhouse building with restaurant/lounge, mercantile store, and locker rooms; mid- level cart and bag storage areas with service support, storage, and mechanical rooms; and stair/elevator tower over a 28,822 sf covered Parking Garage which was built into a hillside.

Design-Build Vehicle Barrier System

This design-build project consisted of design, fabrication, and installation of two miles of modified Normandy barriers. The barrier system provides a continuous passive barrier system to prevent or delay threat vehicles. Major work elements consisted of placement of concrete foundations, fabrication of significant structural steel members, and a substantial volume of field welding.

This project is an Associated General Contractors of WA (AGC) 2014 “Build Washington” award winner for Construction Excellence.

Design-Build Street Repaving Project

Farragut Ave

The scope of this project included the demolition and replacement of approximately 90,000 square feet of existing asphalt and concrete surfaces. Driving lanes were extended out 12’’ past the fog lines and existing curb and gutter, and existing utility trenches remained in place in which 24’’ isolation joints were placed around all trench lids. Traffic control and coordination with all parties was crucial in the successful outcome of this project.

Repair Sports Fields

Navy Sports Field

This was a design-build project that consisted of replacing the existing grass covered sports fields with synthetic turf for both the multipurpose (soccer / football) and softball fields, and a synthetic shock absorbing, rubberized surface for the existing jogging and running trail.

Install Arresting Gears

WA Patriot installed retractable hook support systems to replace the existing above ground arrest gear cables in use at a fully operational air field. The arrest gear cables are used for emergency landing arrest. The work included demolition of 15’ x 200’ of steel plates & concrete at the site of the existing arresting gear cable for install of the new arresting gear system. The runways were shut down to air traffic during construction but adjacent runways were operational.

Repair Railroad Bridges, Various Locations

RR Bridges

This design-build project consisted of repairing four railroad bridges in the Bremerton and Shelton areas. Two bridges are in Shelton, WA and are mainly steel super structures. The steel bridges’ scope of work involved abrasive blasting to eliminate the existing lead paint coat and applying a new three paint coat system to all steel. Two bridges involved repairing the timber portion of the bridge support. This included posting piles, replacing pile caps, stringers; sway braces, and railroad ties. Headwall and wing wall timbers were also replaced to repair the bridge approaches. Three bridges (0.15, 6.6, and 36.35) also included ballast replacement and rail alignments

Hospital Life Safety Repairs

Life Safety

This project addressed various life safety issues and general maintenance items throughout an entire hospital in Bremerton, WA. General scope included replacing ceiling tile and grid, fire stopping of existing penetrations in the ceiling space, changing out light ballasts and lamps, replacing fire sprinkler heads, installing new fire dampers, tagging out valves, and replacing misc. doors and hardware.

WA Patriot developed and effectively implemented infection control procedures throughout the entire project. The facility remained occupied and fully operational during construction.

Brooklake Community Church Expansion *

This design-build project consisted of an 8000SF addition with a new lobby, coffee shop/lounge area, and a large Children’s Worship room. This addition was designed to tie into their current congregation and education buildings, and roadwork widening improvements required by the city of Federal Way.

*Project completed by Wade Perrow Construction with current WA Patriot employees. 

Replace Gas & Water Mains, Saratoga Heights

This design-build project consisted of replacing aging 6’’ AC water lines with 6,800 LF of ductile iron pipe for a new water system. This project also replaced gas mains for 284 dwelling units in Saratoga Heights, approximately 8,400 LF of 4’’ and 2’’ PE pipe. Short runs of new service lines were installed between the new gas main and existing service lines. WA Patriot performed this project in a large family housing development with very little impact to residents.
