Renovation of High-Security Firing Range

About the project

The original scope of work was the supply and installation of a new HVAC system and an updated firing range. However, high lead content was found throughout the firing range, building ductwork and mechanical shafts. With the building occupied during construction, CPI needed to abate the entire building – from the subbasement to the roof – without any contamination or disruption to the 24-7 operations.

CPI demolished the existing interior firing range, multi-story mechanical shafts, penthouse and all air handling units (AHU) to complete the remediation. Shafts and ductwork were six stories high and larger than an elevator shaft, and were encapsulated to prevent lead escaping during bagging and disposing. CPI’s critical concern was eliminating any lead and asbestos exposure to site workers and building occupants. Risk analysis were performed and reviewed weekly with the project team, and coordination meetings were held daily to discuss risks and associated tasks. Safety inspections were done during each task.

The new firing range receieved new state-of-the art shooting range, along with targeting system, sound baffling and reinforced lead encapsulation. All range work was supplied, installed and commissioned by CPI. Upgrades were also done to fire suppression and ventilation systems to meet present requirements.
