Project Details

Cerrudo Services was prime contractor for the design and construction of a standalone 2,860 SF Band Room within the existing Patton Drill Hall in Bell CA.  The rehearsal hall is an open space with an 18’H acoustical tile ceiling, acoustical panels mounted on the walls and carpet tile flooring.  In addition there is a storage room and three individual relocatable music practice rooms.

The new partitions were required to meet an acoustical value of 56 STC to isolate the sound and vibrations from the practice rooms and rehearsal room to the adjacent offices.  The space was designed to support optimal reverberation times for musical performances at mid-range frequencies (500-1000 HZ).

New roof top HVAC units were installed to service the rehearsal hall and the three practice rooms.  Each practice room has a separate, individually controlled HVAC unit with dedicated outside air.  The contract included the installation of a fully functional fire alarm and mass notification system throughout the two story 40,000 SF building as well as the new Band Room.

Project Details

Cerrudo Services designed and constructed a new accessible community park, and renovations to two existing playgrounds at Travis Air Force Base.   The new accessible community park is situated on a 24,100 SF site.  The park is comprised of accessible parking and walkways, nicely landscaped areas of sod, mulched plantings and planter boxes, and a swing set over poured in place soft surfacing.  Amenities include benches, trash receptacles and a bike rack.  There is a 6 foot high chain link fence around the perimeter of the park with three gates.  The irrigation system for sod and plants is programmed through a solar powered controller.  

The renovated portion of the playground at Child Development Center No. 2 is 8,700 SF; and the renovated portion of the Child Development Center No.3 playground is 5,200 SF.  Both playgrounds serve children from three to five years of age.  The playgrounds received new nature activity areas, a stage, affixed musical instruments and art easels, with sod, plantings and accessible walkways.  The Air Force’s concept for the childrens’ play areas were based in part on the current movement to reconnect children to nature – to allow them to grow and explore the natural environment.  Cerrudo designed both the park and playgrounds to allow children the opportunity for free play – plants to explore, music to make, performances to plan and share, and art to create.

Cerrudo Services, Inc renovated the kitchens and latrines at four California National Guard (CANG) Armories in Northern California.  The existing armories were constructed almost 60 years ago.  CANG desired these renovations for their own personnel and to promote the rental of the armories to private groups by providing disabled access to toilet facilities and kitchens.

Kitchens were installed with new ranges and hoods with exhaust and make-up air, fire suppression system, wood cabinetry with stainless steel tops and quarry tile flooring.  Concealed plumbing and electrical infrastructure were installed for sinks, refrigerators, freezers and ice makers.

The Men’s and Women’s latrines were renovated with new plumbing fixtures, solid surface lavatory countertops, toilet partitions and bath accessories, exhaust fans and ceiling heaters.  The finishes were upgraded with new ceramic tile wainscots, new paint on the upper walls and exposed wood beam ceilings, and new ceramic floor tile.

Project Details

Cerrudo Services provided the design and construction for a new direct digital control (DDC) system for all the air handling units, and heating and cooling systems in Building 543 at the Coast Guard Training Center.  The existing control system was an obsolete Honeywell 7600 DDC system and parts were no longer available for the controls.

Existing HVAC equipment in the four story building includes four air handling units (AHU), four AC condensers, six hot water circulating pumps, 110 VAV boxes with thermostats, and a hot water boiler.  Smoke detectors are located in the AHU’s supply and return air ducts.

Upon approval of the design documents, Cerrudo demolished existing equipment including all main and local controllers, work stations and furniture, wiring, all inputs and outputs, building network wiring, all control enclosures and other components associated with the existing DDC system.  Work included patching and painting walls and ceilings to match the existing finish where demolition occurred.

Cerrudo provided a turnkey building automation system consisting of a single complete non-proprietary DDC for control of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems.  The system was designed and installed so the Government can perform their own repair, replacement, upgrades and expansion of the system.  A network accessible device for providing web interface was provided, to be used to obtain system status and make changes to controls.  The new work was interconnected with the existing air and water flow systems, each adjusted to work together as one complete system.
