DIV Troops Barracks Civil Design and Stormwater Pollution Prev. Plans

This project included the design and construction of two barracks with built-in soldier community areas and supporting facilities. Access for persons with disabilities was provided in public areas.

Erdman Anthony provided the civil/site design for a four-building barracks development. The design was broken down into three sites: A, B, and C.

Sites A and B totaled 20.6 acres. The combined site consisted of two 222-room barracks and one 150-room barrack. Included was a 444-space parking lot, a 150-space parking lot, and 3,000 feet of new three-lane roadway (plan, profile, and typical section). Specific design services included site layout and grading, drainage design, soil erosion and sedimentation controls (temporary and permanent), preparation of stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP) and notice of intent (NOI), and roadway and site lighting for utilities; including: 3,000 feet of water main, domestic water, and fire protection connections to each building; 1,650 feet of sanitary sewer, natural gas, electric, and communications. A micropool extended detention pond was created as part of the drainage design to control runoff.

Site C totaled about one acre. The site included a 40-room barracks addition with a 0.2-acre parking lot expansion/reconfiguration, utility design for the sanitary sewer connection, and soil erosion and sedimentation controls.

Site design and development for anti-terrorism/force protection measures were in accordance with UFC 4-010-02 DoD Minimum Standoff Distances for Buildings. Supporting facilities included water, sanitary sewer, electrical, gas, storm drainage, information systems, fire alarm and protection systems, mass notification systems, roadway, parking, lighting, sidewalks, paving, signage, landscaping, and site improvements. This project was executed in a fast-track design/build format.
