GA Army National Guard MATES, Fort Stewart, GA

Proud to work for the Georgia Army National Guard

This project consisted of permanent vertical construction and general site-work.  The project was planned to be constructed in two separate phases, dependent upon the funding of each phase.  Phase 1 site design included a MATES (Maneuver Area Training Equipment Site) facility composed of three separate buildings and housing work bays, storage and administrative offices totaling approximately 64,000 square feet. Phase 1 was designed to accommodate Phase 2 immediately adjacent to and north of the Phase 1 buildings. Grading, drainage and utilities were designed and installed in Phase 1 to accommodate the 30,000 square foot Phase 2 Administrative Building.  The site is located within Fort Stewart on a relatively flat site of approximately 40 acres.  As a subconsultant to Jacobs Engineering, Hussey Gay Bell provided the site/civil design, geotechnical engineering, surveying and construction support services for Phase 1 of the project.

The primary MATES facility includes maintenance bays, shops, storage, administrative offices, break room, locker/shower, and other ancillary support spaces. The site work generally consists of military vehicle parking, POV parking, access aprons, loading dock/ramp access, drives, general storm water control/detention, utility yard, sidewalks, and other miscellaneous site features as appropriate to this type of facility.

Construction delivery method for this project was Design/Bid/Build and the approximate construction cost for Phase 1 is $16,000,000.
