SAIC Builds Advanced Metal Finishing Facility at Robins AFB with Walgren as Primary Technology Source

(McLEAN, Va.) – Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) has completed the design and upgrade of the Advanced Metal Finishing Facility at Robins Air Force Base, an improvement that will make working conditions safer, cleaner, and greener for Base employees and the environment.

The $67-million, 98,000 square-foot facility is filled with state-of-the-art equipment, controls, and automated lines. The Advanced Metal Finishing Facility will house the Plating Shop, which applies anti-corrosive finishes to aircraft parts.

"Our integrated design-build team did an outstanding job dealing with the complexities of this project. In addition to applying advanced technologies to the Metal Finishing Facility, our team also had to manage a phased project, working around existing facilities and base operations," said Mike Gwyn, president of SAIC Constructors, LLC. "We could not have been successful without the fantastic cooperation and assistance we received from the Army Corps of Engineers' Robins Air Force Base office and from Walgren Company, our primary technology provider."
