« Institutional | CAROTHERS CONSTRUCTION INC. – SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND SOUTH HEADQUARTERS The new SOCSOUTH headquarters will cover more than 120,000 square feet. Built to Last CAROTHERS IS BUILDING THE NEW SOCSOUTH HEADQUARTERS TO SURVIVE HURRICANES. BY ALAN DORICH W hen building a structure for a specific market, it is best to have experience. After 57 years, Carothers Construction Inc. has gained the necessary experience with government construction after completing a wide variety of projects, Vice President Scott Murphy says. “This is what we do every day,” he declares. Carothers is applying that experience to its Special Operations Command South (SOCSOUTH) Headquarters project at the Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida. Murphy explains that the project consists of a three-story building that will cover approximately 120,000 square feet. The headquarters, he explains, must be finished by October and will allow the staff to communicate with other special operations and 132 CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2013 command center employees. “We’re putting all that infrastructure in place,” Murphy says. Additionally, Carothers is building the headquarters with replacements for its operations. “If it takes a 5,000-kilowatt generator to run the building, we’ve got two of them in case one fails,” he says. “There are two paths for everything.” Ready for Disaster After the recent hurricane disasters, the SOCSOUTH headquarters is taking precautions in its construction. The building, Murphy notes, is designed to survive 195 mph winds and or a Category 5 hurricane. The exterior facade of the building also is made entirely of tilt-wall concrete. Additionally, while most buildings have their main systems on the first floor, the SOCSOUTH headquarters instead will have them on the second level, which allows for the first floor to be flooded in the event of a storm surge.
