Coast 2 Coast partnered with Michael Baker Jr, Inc. to provide field survey and computer-aided drafting (CAD) services. The project encompassed 60 campus buildings (1.6 million square feet) for the Naval Facilities Engineering Command in Bethesda, Maryland. Variety was a key element during the project – laboratories, medical storage spaces, cooling systems, physical plants, hazardous waste storage, and animal research centers were among the many facility types documented by the Coast 2 Coast team. The list included secured and non-secured spaces in offices, hospitals, warehouses, data centers, and historic buildings.
Floor plan details collected for each building included walls, doors, windows, stairs, elevators, and columns. Based on Spatial Data Management requirements within NAVFAC, surveyors categorized each space by type and attached associated attribute data to the unique polygon. Field Survey Specialists noted facility ID, special area codes, building number, space number, room number, space ID, space type, space description, seat count, and ceiling height. Alongside the delivery of updated AutoCAD drawings, Coast 2 Coast monitored the integration of SDM into the NAVFAC system to ensure data integrity throughout the project.
