US Coast Guard: ENG/AST Building

When the United States Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmers and Emergency Medical Technicians are called to rescue the crew of a sinking fishing boat, the last thing they want to worry about is the fueling station lights or power at their facility. 

The new Engineering and Aviation Survival Technician building at the United States Coast Guard’s North Bend site houses a variety of in-house functions, including: Engineering, Administration, Parts Storage and various Mechanic Shops.  Reese Electric Contractors and Double ‘E’ Engineering, LLC joined forces on this LEED Silver design/build project.  The project encompassed the construction of two new buildings:  A 295 square-foot Equipment room, housing the service entrance equipment and emergency generator; and the 20,100 square-foot multi-function ENG/AST Building.  Housed within this multi-function ENG/AST Building is:

  • Welding and Wood Shop: A 4,314 square foot shop, complete with a LEED certified dust collection system.
  • Multi-Purpose Training: A 1,388 square foot room equipped with A/V functions and a multi-level lighting system.
  • Aviation Survival: A 2,514 square foot area designed specifically for the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep individuals safe on the Oregon Coast.  This area is complete with specialized sewing equipment, gear storage, laundry, showers & locker rooms and administrative offices.
