Widely recognized as the premiere warehouse facility on the North Slope, the Northeast Shops, designed and constructed by ASRC SKW Eskimos (ASKW), serves the operations support and maintenance needs of ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. (CPAI) at the Kuparuk Oil Field. Among other maintenance activities, CPAI can now work on well houses indoors, in conditions that reduce safety and weather concerns.
The complete design services for the 14,000-square-foot, pre-engineered metal building provided by ASKW included not only civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical disciplines, but also fire detection and suppression, controls and bridge cranes. Owner satisfaction was a top priority. During the project, input invited from user groups resulted in modifications to improve functionality. Interior features include overhead cranes; 30- by 30-foot, high-speed, rubber doors; and modular office and mezzanine systems.
The building is installed on a hydrocarbon-resistant liner that extends 30 feet outside the building footprint. By achieving building close-in before the winter months, ASKW was able to pour concrete and complete other construction services after cold weather arrived.
To meet the cost control needs of CPAI, ASKW enhanced typical cost and schedule reporting to provide complete transparency for our client at all times. Details about safety, project activities conducted, quality control milestones, schedule, manpower status, equipment use, project changes, and submittal status, as well as photographs of building progress, were provided weekly. The processes developed by ASKW for handling quality control, safety and resource tracking reduced costs for CPAI, resulting in significant savings. The work was accomplished for significantly less than the originally estimated budget.
