Design-Build Main Gate Canopy

Type of contract
IDIQ Task Order
Fort Belvoir, VA
Completion date
June 2015

TMG Construction performed the design-build installation of new main gate cover at a secure corporate campus. The project involved the design of the canopy, including foundations prepared by the canopy manufacturer’s engineers, canopy lighting, electrical power, and security cameras.

Site engineering included erosion and sediment control considerations. The canopy structure and all components were structurally designed to support a minimum 35 PSF live load and withstand a minimum of 90 mph winds.

Construction began after design approval and before the canopy arrived on site. All work was conducted to cause the least interference possible to normal activities of onsite employees. Regular construction schedule “look-aheads” were coordinated with onsite employees to allow for mutual adjustments to operations.

The successful coordination between design, construction and client allowed this project to completed two weeks ahead of schedule.
