NAVFAC is the Naval Shore and Expeditionary Systems Command that plans, builds, and maintains sustainable facilities; delivers environmental, utilities and other base services and acquires and manages expeditionary combat force systems and equipment.

SITUATION

The Naval Engineering Facilities Command required the development of Conceptual Design and an Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE) for Congressional budgeting. The IGCE is the U.S. Government’s estimate of costs that the government may incur in the performance of a project or program. It serves as the basis for budgeting of funds during acquisition planning; it provides the basis for comparing costs or prices proposed by offerors/applicants; and it serves as an objective basis for determining price reasonableness during acquisition.

TASK

iParametrics is providing planning, cost and value engineering and economic analysis on six recently awarded task orders, including feasibility/planning studies for buildings in Southern California; interior renovations at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Virginia; and two new medical buildings.


ACTION

iParametrics provided planning, cost and value engineering and economic analysis in support of the design of a 44,000-square-foot medical dental clinic at the Marine Corps Air Station in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and an approximately 478,000-square-foot research and laboratory addition to the medical school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Services, located within the historic Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. This roughly $280-million-dollar project will comprise approximately 120,000 square feet of laboratories, a bio-safety level (BSL) 3 laboratory and six radiology rooms, including MRIs.

RESULT

iParametrics successfully delivered phased planning, cost and value engineering and economic analysis for the aforementioned projects.
