Fort A. P. Hill Undergoes Major Infrastructural Update, Replacing 17 Aging Restrooms with Precast Concrete Buildings
October 6, 2014 | Easi-Set Buildings
Durable Easi-Set Buildings will provide nearly maintenance free service for over 50 years.
Bowling Green, VA – Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQB: SMID) As an active military installation, which hosts all branches of the military and even foreign allies for training exercises, Fort A.P. Hill needs to have a solid infrastructure. With many of the bases’ latrines in a state of disrepair their wastewater management vendor, American Water Operations, tapped Smith-Midland to replace nearly all of the facilities with Easi-Set precast concrete restrooms.
Fort A.P. Hill provides state-of-the-art training facilities focused on providing realistic joint and combined arms training. Considering the importance of the facility and the exposure it receives, every detail, including operational and aesthetically pleasing restrooms, is important.
“Many of the buildings we are replacing were run down, and in a complete state of disrepair. The Easi-Set Buildings we are installing are rated for 50+ years of use,” said George Sharikas, Smith-Midland Sales Representative. “This will be a major improvement over their current setup. These Easi-Set restrooms will provide our troops with sturdy, long-lasting facilities while they train.”
With this base being an active military installation, completing each instillation in a timely fashion was a major factor in choosing a precast building product. “Once the holes are dug, we set the tank, and then place the building on top of it the following day. Total installation time is 2 days, 3 tops,” remarked Sharikas.
“We had to beat out a national competitor for this project,” said Matthew Smith, V.P. of Sales. “Our Easi-Set Buildings product line is extremely versatile. We were able to come up with a building design that would work for all 17 sites. This allowed American Water Operations to fulfill their contract with the base in one shot. We are proud to be supporting our troops in any way that we can.”
