Public Works


CFA worked with the project architects, Van Woert Bigotti, to provide engineering, surveying and landscape architectural services for this two-story, 36,150 square foot building for the Nevada Air National Guard, located at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport. Site work included demolition, site drainage, grading and infrastructure distribution systems. All engineering was consistent with base master planning studies. Security for the building was maintained around the site perimeter with proper “standoff” distances, which requires no obstructions. Landscaping was kept very low, with some deciduous trees near the entry and plaza locations. Plantings were taller for screening pumps, backflow units and other utilities. The landscaping included various options for potential additive bid items at the access road and outlying parking lots. The project was completed in 2008. The Associated General Contractors selected this project as the recipient of the 2008 Pinnacle Award for projects over $5 million in the category of Excellence in Project Management.
