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 Marine'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 Marine's climate-controlled containment tents ensure the strict protocols are met during application of the new deck primer and finish - ultimately helping with adhesion of the new flooring materials and with improving drying time. "The work of removing the worn out decking must be contained; dust, dirt, and removed materials are captured and later disposed," says Robert Patrick, IFPC Marine's General Manager. "To meet EPA standards, a super-sized containment tent is erected 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 Marine 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 ship remained semi-operational, and they completed services in 90 days. IFPC Marine readied the Kearsarge for the 8-month deployment on time and within budget.
