SMC Logistics Infrastructure Support Services (SLISS)-II

Provide facility electrical engineering support for SMC/ECP located in Building 2025, PAFB. Building 2025, the Centralized Integration Support Facility (CISF) is ~ 200,000 square feet. The CISF operates on four 2000DVA 30 480/277V main circuit breakers, 2 generators, 500 KVA 30 480/277 unit, 500 gallon diesel each, 17 Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) with additional units to be installed as mission requirements dictates with the facilities team managing and overseeing the installation of additional units. The building has eight 300 ton chillers, 16 chiller pumps, 8 cooling towers, 4 VFD chilled water circulating pumps, two 120 British Thermal Units (BTU) boilers, 2 hot water pumps, 12 air handlers, 24 supply & return fans nominal 20hp each, 2 domestic water heaters and 2 elevators (1 freight and 1 passenger).

Facilities requirements include accomplishing designs for major and minor construction projects throughout the facility.

Facilities provides complete updated electrical drawings of all projects conducted to 21 CE. It is critical the contractor has a thorough understanding of these complex systems to build complete and accurate SOWs. Facilities manages over 25 trouble calls per week and provides in-house repairs to 75% percent of those calls. For the remaining 25%, facilities contacts 21 CE to assist in troubleshooting. The calls are tracked and monitored until completion. The CISF has 80,000 square feet of computer space, requiring facilities personnel to troubleshoot, provide crucial information, and the expertise to assist the programs in assuring little to no mission downtime. The electrical engineer is required to perform system resets and minor troubleshooting and repair. However primary maintenance is conducted by 21 CE or contracted out to external entities.
