Design for New 93rd AGOW/MSG HQ, Moody AFB, GA
ZAPATA designed the new 93rd AGOW/MSG Headquarters building at Moody AFB, Georgia, to complement an existing adjacent building which overlooks Heritage Park/Austin Ellipse. ZAPATA’s design incorporated architectural features and landscape elements to promote consistency with both the adjacent building and also the overall base. This facility consolidates Operations, Support, Wing Plans, Emergency Operations and Command Post facilities to direct the functions associated with the Combat Search and Rescue Mission on Moody AFB and with geographically separated units. The new headquarters building is a 2-story structure totaling 36,167 SF on a 5.2 acre lot and was constructed as a design-build project. ZAPATA also provided Commissioning and Construction Phase Services including on-site engineering services. The design earned LEED v3 Silver Certification!
Chile - Lepanto Landfill Leachate Treatment System
ZAPATA contributed to design and building of certain components for the operation of Lepanto Landfill. As part of this project ZAPATA added a train of pre-filtered gravel filters for the RIL and a carbon filter after treatment to significantly reduce the consumption of chemicals during the operation of the plant.
Structural Engineering Design Services
ZAPATA provided the structural engineering design for two new three story elevator shafts and corresponding lobbies at a three-story 151,000sf office building. ZAPATA also helped determine the existing building structural system and what could and could not be demolished on the third floor in preparation for the third floor up-fit.
Fire Station #1
ZAPATA designed the expansion and renovation of an existing fire station at an Army installation. The existing structure is a circa 1950 concrete frame structure with masonry infill. The design called for the expansion of the gathering room, dayroom, and kitchen; renovation of the billeting space, Captain’s office/bedroom, and bathrooms; and removal of asbestos. The bathrooms were reconfigured to meet ADA requirements and updated with low flush fixtures. The design called for the demolition of mechanical and electrical systems and replacement with more energy efficient products. Windows in the renovated spaces are compliant with AT/FP and energy efficiency standards. ZAPATA was able to complete the design 45 days ahead of schedule and provide the complete sets of drawings and specifications.
