The Pernix Guam employees completed this design build project to construct twelve (12) standard modular munitions storage magazines, box-type Hayman igloos. The Igloos measure 26’-0” wide x 80’-0” long and 11’-0” high in space capacity and are made of Pre-cast walls & roof panels with cast in-place front wing walls, with each igloos water proofed inside and out.
Subsidiary facilities include a generator house, transformer pad with enclosures, and two switch pad enclosures. Site work that involved roadways, aprons, and the laying of several miles of electrical and communication lines. Working hours on the project were highly restricted, and work could only be performed between 7:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday to Friday, with no holidays or overtime. The construction site is adjacent to areas designated as wildlife refuge for the endangered Marianas Fruit Bat and Marianas Crow. Coordination with proper authorities was necessary at all times during construction to ensure the safety of those species during their nesting season. All construction and designated wildlife refuge areas were cleared of any hazardous materials or other materials that would potentially harm them.
