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 SF. 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 SF 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.
