USS Theodore Roosevelt Flight Deck and Hangar Bay
Naval Station Norfolk, VA -
 Completed 2013, 50,000 SF

When a warship comes into dock for deck resurfacing, IFPC's expert team goes straight to work, in many cases 24/7. IFPC marine technicians constructed towering spines of aluminum atop the ship to accommodate the mega-sized PVC fabric membrane that overlay the 50,000SF structure, with many sections widening to nearly 200 feet. IFPC's climate-controlled containment tents ensure the strict protocols are met during the application of the new deck primer and finish - ultimately helping with the latest flooring materials' adhesion and improving drying time. "The work of removing the worn-out decking must be contained; dust, dirt, and removed materials are captured and later disposed of," says Robert Patrick, IFPC's General Manager. "To meet EPA standards, a super-sized containment tent is assembled and fortified at all four corners," adds Patrick.

USS Kearsarge Flight Deck
Naval Station Norfolk, VA - 
Completed 2014, 90,000 SF

Under contract with BAE Systems, IFPC constructed two (2) climate-controlled mega-tents for a phased blast and installation of exterior decking on this Wasp-class amphibious assault ship. Certified professionals needed to complete the work while the vessel remained semi-operational, and they completed services in 90 days. IFPC readied the Kearsarge for the 8-month deployment on time and within budget.
