A lot of work went in to Phase 2 of the extensive KGC Refurbishment Project. It is very typical of the sort of work that Kepi carry out for the military forces around the world. In this case the client was the US Military
The KGC Phase 2 project was a series of 15 specified separate tasks involving a wide range of refurbishment works within a military base in the Afghan capital city of Kabul. As with many of our military projects much of this work was highly confidential but it included:
• Inspection, repair and, where necessary, replacement of a range of electrical panels, wires and cables. Kepi’s job was to make certain that all the electrical installations and cabling infrastructure were not only in reliable working order but they able to do their job for years to come. All work had to conform to BS 7671/2018.
• Refurbishment of various living accommodation blocks which included replacing HVAC units, plumbing works, roofing repairs and preventative maintenance plus the erection of security fencing. The job also included the replacement of all doors and locks. Kepi were also tasked with painting the interior and exterior walls of all the refurbished buildings as well as deep cleaning of all the interior surfaces.
• The construction of a series of concrete base pads to house both 40ft and 20ft ISO containers. Once the containers were in situ Kepi fitted out the interiors, including walls, ceilings and floors and provided water and sewage lines to customer agreed design specifications.
• Kepi also expanded the existing perimeter fencing to include repositioning of existing T walls and the fabrication and the fitting of an additional vehicle and pedestrian gate.
All this work was carried out as quickly and effectively as possible whilst working in a high security environment in challenging environmental conditions. Kepi provided full turnkey solutions including materials handling, site management, construction teams and equipment hire with everybody working to BS safety and quality standards. Work was completed on time.
All facilities need some work to keep them in tip top shape and Camp Juno in Helmand Province, Afghanistan is no exception. Housekeeping is necessary to ensure everything is fully operational and this includes maintaining existing infrastructure such as fencing, existing and new groundworks. In support of British military operations and UK Works Group Royal Engineers Kepi were engaged to carry out repair and refurbishment around the camp in a number of areas.
There are many examples of Kepi delivering part of a project as a sub-contractor, either working on their own bespoke area or working in collaboration on a part of the construction and build. In this particular case Kepi were working with CADG as a sub-contractor tasked with supplying the building that housed a number of fuel storage tanks and their ancillary equipment. The location was Camp Shorabak in Helmand, Afghanistan and the project was part of the US Reconstruction Project in the Province.
As well as major construction and infrastructure projects Kepi also deliver lower key works. These are just as important as they provide necessary servicers such as this one. The Australian Department of Defence were looking to improver the levels of security around their precincts at Camp Qargha, Kabul in Afghanistan and they wanted a comprehensive plan and installation for their internal fencing. This needed to include “ceremonial” as well as vehicle and pedestrian gates.
Kepi deliver major infrastructure projects in the conflict zone of Afghanistan, mainly for the various international defence forces. These clients require their contractors to carry out their work quickly but to a very high standard so that future maintenance is kept to a minimum. Kepi were happy to take on a road maintenance and upgrade project, with drainage work included, for the Australian Department of Defence in Camp Qargha, Kabul.
The Australian Defence Force needed a reliable and experienced Facilities management company to run, maintain and operate their diverse range of buildings located across the city of Kabul in Afghanistan. They chose Kepi and whist this was a challenging contract, in a war zone, we have managed their Kabul property portfolio to a very standard.
