Construction Mock-ups

Marinette Marine Corporation is in the process of building full-scale mock-ups of the bridge, all main laboratories, the wheelchair accessible stateroom, and aft science control room.  The mock-ups will incorporate accurate physical representations including overhead support structures of the equipment and consoles that will be installed in these spaces.

Mock-Ups are intended to reveal potential interferences that may be avoided without cost to UAF or the Contractor during detail design and engineering, and in some cases, by issuance of a change order to resolve issues not foreseen in the drawings.  The mock-ups also provide an opportunity to walk through the full size spaces to identify possible improvements in their respective lay outs. 

Mock-ups are used for design verification and transfer review and will be in place until all working drawings that impact the spaces are completed.
