West Ramp Areas of Base Protected From New Station
By Kristen Skopeck
Fire fighters at Holloman Air Force Base, six miles west of Alamogordo, N.M., are settling into a new crash and fire rescue station recently constructed through a contract between the Corps and Anthony & Gordon Construction Co, Inc.
Serving the west ramp areas of Holloman, the new station was completed June 13 at a cost of nearly $6.5 million.
“The project was constructed and completed without any significant issues because of the work and cooperation of a very good construction contractor,” said Robert Reynolds, acting office engineer in the Holloman Resident Office.
“The Air Force requested changes that extended the contract performance period about a month; otherwise, the contractor would have finished the project early.”
Key individuals who contributed to the successful completion of the project include: Corps’ Project Engineer Ron Niemi, Quality Assurance Representative Tom Flanigan, Air Force Project Manager Stan Rymarowicz and fire department customer Rick Widmark.
Interestingly, the Corps’ involvement is not over, as “demolition of the old crash and fire rescue station is pending a contract award by the District, and this work should take about eight months,” Reynolds said.
