On August 16th, a ribbon cutting was held to commemorate the completion of the Counter Battery Radar Project. Invitees enjoyed a brief ceremony and then were able to tour the new Administration Building. These facilities support military personnel with the utilization and maintenance of the 11th Marine Counter Battalion Radar system.
This project involved the construction of a three-story Administration Building and a nine-bay Tactical Vehicle Building, totaling 28,800 sq ft. The 15,500 sq ft Administration Building consists of space with cubicles, classrooms, kitchenette areas, and a lecture hall with tiered seating. In addition, it features a reception area, file and storage spaces, and mapping room. Daylight Harvesters adjust the room lighting dependent on window shades being opened or closed, saving the end-user energy. The 13,300 sq ft Tactical Vehicle Building contains nine drive-in bays with roll-up doors, as well as a tool room and team storage rooms. This facility is equipped with dehumidification and overhead vehicle exhaust systems for specific mission requirements and radar functionality. Designed and built to achieve LEED Silver, the Tactical Vehicle Building features a photovoltaic component of 30 KW and the Administration Building has 3 KW of photovoltaic.
Congratulations to the project team for the successful completion of these facilities!
