Summary: Operating out of the 6,583-acre base is the 615 th Contingency Operations Support Group (COSG), which was established in 2007 for expeditionary operations worldwide. With as little as 12 hours notice, the 573 rd Global Support Squadron (GSS) is able to deploy command and control, communications, aerial port and aircraft-maintenance capabilities to remote locations across the globe where airfield support is often non-existent.
Bergelectric is working directly with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest Division in a design-assist effort that will deliver a new 23,393-sf Global Support Squadron Command and Operations Facility for the 573 rd. In addition to providing site power distribution, Berg is responsible for all site lighting and branch conduits for the $10-million facility. “Our local in-house detailers, including Dan Bauer, are utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) to improve effiency and provide upfront coordination with other trades, which makes for an economical installation,” stated Berg Project Manager Geoff Haeger.
