Defense Logistics Agency Warehouse Improvements

J&S Construction completed its second contract for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District in November 2014. The Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Warehouse Improvements project was a $2.6 million fixed-firm contract, located at Camp Funston on Ft. Riley, southwest of Manhattan, Kan.

The scope of work included: dismantling existing storage racks, installation of new storage racks, installation of a storage rack protective equipment, polishing the concrete warehouse floor, striping the warehouse floor, installation of a new fire alarm system and the design and installation of a new fire suppression system.

J&S Construction renovated warehouses for three separate facilities: Building 1950 (35,650 square feet), Building 1959 (6,600 square feet) and Building 1960 (6,040 square feet).

Ft. Riley, “Home of the Big Red One” (1st Infantry Division), is known for its excellent training, abundant recreational opportunities, rich history and tremendous relations with surrounding communities.

The objective for this contract included the design and construction improvements to facilities to increase safety, reduce slips, trips and falls and provide more operability to the facility.

The primary mission of the DLA Disposition Services is to dispose of Department of Defense (DoD) excess and surplus personal property generated by the military services.

This contract stemmed from a Small Business Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) for Whiteman Air Force Base (Mo.) and the Northwest Kansas District. J&S Construction completed its first contract for this specific MATOC at Whiteman Air Force Base in May 2014. That contract consisted of the construction of a $3.4 million, 8,725 square-foot Logistics Readiness Squadron facility.

“This contract is just another example of being able to sit down with owners and help them to figure out the most cost-effective way to deal with their construction needs,” said Jack Stites, J&S Construction CEO.
