Project Title  Security Fencing, Ground Based Missile Defence (GBMD) Project
Project Location  Fort Greely, Alaska
Project Type  Sensor Fence and Gate Construction
Project Description Work consisted of installing security fence and gate systems at the Ground Based Missile Defense Project. Sloan Security Group was a sub-contractor to Fluor Alaska Inc.  Fluor Alaska Inc. was subcontracted to Boeing Federal Services under contract to USACE.

SSG installed 15,000 LF of 8 feet chain link fence with two integrated vehicle crash resistant cables and 3,200 LF of framework for an advanced high security sensor fence system. In order to effectively deliver the security system, SSG managed the on-site surveying and grading to insure proper grade tolerances, the fabrication and installation of pre-cast cable anchors, the vacuum excavation of fence footings, and the field fabrication of custom steel braces. SSG provided access control solutions at site entrances, including four manual cantilever gates, two operated cantilever gates, and two specially engineered vehicle crash barrier gates. To accurately communicate work progress, SSG provided weekly electronic man-hour loaded scheduling and man-loading charts and graphs to Fluor, Boeing, and USACE.

Project Challenges
  •  Successfully pioneering the use of vacuum excavation and air-operated fence fastening systems for installing security fence in sub-arctic site conditions enabling the project to be completed ahead of schedule;
  • Project shutdowns required due to smoke from adjacent forest fires; and
  • All aspects of the project were completed under extremely tight military security
