Weston completed a $3.8M FFP CIR project at two separate installations located 50 miles apart under one TO in VA.To maintain mission readiness and facility compliance at the U.S. Navy’s largest fuel terminal, Weston lead the design-build construction CIR project comprising internal tank cleanings, floor evaluations, repairs, and associated design work at four bunkered (cut-and-cover) storage tanks at Defense Fuels Supply Point (DFSP) Yorktown and API 653 in-service inspections of two aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) at DFSP Craney Island. Each of the four bunkered tanks (JP-5) had a storage capacity of 150,000 barrels (bbls), diameter of 150 feet, and height of 50 feet. The two ASTs (JP-8) had a storage capacity of 47,000 bbls, diameter of 122 feet, and height of 23 feet.
Weston self-performed major work elements, including all project and site management, design engineering, health and safety, QC, and civil, mechanical, and coating oversight. By using a military-specified coating as directed by UFGS, Weston was able to save the government $20K by waiving duplicative batch testing. Weston was rated outstanding by the government on quality of workmanship and coordination and control of subcontractors. Weston engineers considered best practice methods to develop repair recommendations and designs on the underground bunker tank that was not constructed to meet a general standard or guidance criteria. The prevailing client-focused approach is evinced in our work through the quality and flexibility our clients have come to rely on. For example, when Weston learned mid-way through the project that project goals had shifted because the Yorktown Tank Farm would be closing in several years, Weston reevaluated repair recommendations to support reduced service life. Weston initiated several cost savings to overcome unforeseen and unique site conditions, including sequencing work to minimize costs during scope adjustments that required government approval.We were able to resolve field delays, contract delays, and winter impacts by increasing our equipment needs and working weekends and holidays to meet deadlines. To meet schedule requirements, Weston worked simultaneously on multiple activities and subcontracted work;we oversaw each work element and ensured the correct, licensed tradesmen were validated.
