Project Summary

Welliver managed the successful construction of the 176,000 square-foot presidential helicopter facility that houses the program's administrative offices, systems integration laboratories and an aircraft integration hangar.

 

This facility provides the next generation of Commanders-in-Chief with new Marine One helicopters.

  • 1700 tons or 3.4 million pounds of steel were brought in
  • 6,500 cubic yards or 26 million pounds of concrete were used
  • 225 miles of electrical wire and telecommunications cable were used
  • 80 percent of the workforce was from the local area
  • 90 percent of subcontractor companies were from New York State
  • Welliver managed over 40 different subcontractors and vendors
  • Site preparation for the facility began in the spring of 2005 and structural steel went up in September
  • By December, the facility was enclosed so that interior work could continue at full-speed during the cold winter months
  • Fast-track schedule - projected completion was 18 months, the actual completion was 15 months - three months ahead of schedule
