FSM Drawings has provided CADD services for many clients, from small residential to large federal projects. Below are some brief descriptions of some of our recent projects.
AIP3-25-5200, Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport Noise Mitigation Program – FAA-funded, Westfield, MA: 2010-2013
CADD services and CADD modification drafting for 112 single-family homes selected for participation in Noise Mitigation Program – Groups 1 through 5 Design
Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport is also home of the MA Air National Guard (ANG) 104th Fighter Wing and its F-15 Eagle. The 104th Fighter Wing, as part of the Aerospace Control Alert (ACA) system, has the unique mission to be combat ready providing armed fighters ready to scramble in a moment’s notice to protect the Northeast from any airborne threat. Their deployment in Westfield has created increased noise by the incoming and outgoing flights of these jet fighters. Mitigation was necessary.
AIP3-25-5200, Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport Buyout Program – FAA-funded, Westfield, MA: 2010-2014
Groups 1 through 4; Demolition of 13 Homes; CADD services and CADD modification drafting for Plans & Contract Documents
In support of the Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport Noise Mitigation Program, we provided demolition plans to support hazardous material surveys. We generated existing conditions CADD Plans and provided Modifications as needed through the bidding process.
Based on the CADD drafting from field notes taken during this demolition project, the Reviewer noticed trees were placed approximate and not as measured to building. This allows the City to be back-charged by the contractor for trees too close during demolition. To prevent this, FSM provided an extra trip to the site to verify exact field conditions and updated the CADD plans prior to bid.
CADD Services & Modification: Westfield Barnes Air National Guard Base and Westfield Barnes Regional Airport: 2010
Updating and Modification to Details and Mechanical Notes; 84 ANSI-A sheets of details and mechanical notes
At the onset of this project, the Prime Contractor decided that many of the installation details, equipment specification details, and other data for the project used across the county for over 20 years needed to be updated.
Our firm was selected to perform the task because of our long-term relationship with the Prime Contractor working in the Northeast on multiple airport projects. We generated CADD drawings with updated technical and field modifications provided to us by Prime Contractor’s Technical/Construction department. QA/QC was an important part of the success in this fast-paced project.
