- Marine Corps Base Facilities
Our team was the Designer of Record under a prime construction contractor for the design-build construction of three new facilities at Camp Lejeune.
The single-story Simulator Center has 86,700 square feet of space for exercise support, role player coordination, after-action review, target, device and systems support. Simulator areas include marksmanship, combat convoy, vehicle egress, operational driver and supporting arms training. The facility also provides exercise and classroom spaces to support specialized trainer systems.
The single-story Range Control Facility’s primary function is to manage air and water space over the region related to range activities. It has 21,200 square feet and supports the training requirements for civilian personnel. The Range Operations Center within the Range Control Facility, also known as Blackburn, is a sophisticated 24/7/365 essential-to-operations space and requires physical separation from the rest of the facility.
The Supply and Boat Maintenance Facility consists of 9,200 square feet and includes high bay storage and shipping/receiving space for range operations equipment and a boat shop for boat repair and maintenance. The boat shop is designed and constructed as a reinforced concrete masonry unit building on pile foundations with structural steel framing, reinforced masonry walls, brick veneer, reinforced concrete foundation and floors and standing seam metal roof.
The other buildings are designed as reinforced concrete masonry unit on standard cast in place concrete spread and continuous foundations with structural steel framing, reinforced masonry walls, brick veneer, reinforced concrete foundation and floors, and standing seam metal roofs. The complex includes virtual training systems, administrative spaces, high-bay simulator space, classrooms, storage space, conference/ training rooms and telecommunication rooms. The range control operations center features under-floor communications wiring.
A covered training area of concrete slab on grade with structural steel framing and standing seam metal roofs provides covered shelter for use during outdoor training exercises to support equipment training for the tactical engagement simulator systems.
