Project 11: Station Renovations at USCG Station Port Aransas

TX (Category B)


For this design-bid-build firm fixed price MATOC Task Order contract Sergent Construction Services acted as general contractor and also self-performed a majority of the on-site work. The project’s scope of work involved renovations and repairs to the United States Coast Guard’s existing 8,000SF multipurpose facility located in Port Aransas, TX. The existing facility was in need of major repairs due to wear and tear from 25 years of use. The project’s scope of work included the complete replacement of the facility’s existing HVAC, DDC system as well as the rehabilitation of the facility’s existing electrical and plumbing system. The facility’s existing HVAC system was in complete disrepair and was not functioning when SCS arrived on-site. HVAC work included the complete removal and replace of all supply, return, and exhaust ductwork, installation of new condensers & air handlers, exhaust fans, and the installation of zero clearance grease ductwork for the kitchen hoods.
Additional work on this project included paint and flooring throughout the 8,000SF facility, new drywall ceilings, drywall finishing, complete bathroom demolition and rehabilitation with the installation of new vanities, shower stall, plumbing, and plumbing fixtures in the facility’s 9 restrooms. Site work included the removal and replacement of the station’s above ground fueling system. The existing 500 gallon gasoline Con-Vault fuel tank was replaced with a new 1,000 gallon Con-Vault fuel tank. The existing fuel system piping was also removed and replaced with Stainless Steel piping. In addition, new filter vessels were added to the fuel system in conjunction with the removal and replacement of the fuel systems hose reels and dispeners.

This project is extremely relevant in scope and complexity to that of the task orders we anticipate to encounter on this MATOC and included the following relevant work types:

  • Construction, renovation, repair, & alteration of general facilities throughout the entire project site.
  • Construction, repair and alteration of mechanical & HVAC systems throughout the building.
  • Construction, repair, and alteration of plumbing systems including the installation of new equipment drains.
  • Construction, repair, and alteration of electrical systems through the facility including the installation of new lighting, lighting control, and home runs for new mechanical equipment.

Additional relevancy includes: renovation of an occupied and active federal government facility. Since this project was accomplished while the facility was still fully operational with very little disturbance to the building’s occupants/residents which required a phased construction work schedule. This project also falls within the relevant price range of $150,000-$1.5 million for Category B and is very similar in size and complexity to what we anticipate to see on task orders for this MATOC.

On this firm fixed price design-bid-build construction contract Sergent Construction Services acted as the general contractor and in addition self-performed the demolition, HVAC, fuel system, plumbing, electrical, and carpentry. This project is a prime example of SCS’s ability to self-perform a vast majority of our contracted work. In total, SCS self-performed 75% of this task order’s scope of work and no major sub-contractors were utilized. This project stands as a prime example of SCSs ability to self-perform a majority of our project’s scopes of work.
