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.
“The P-1019 counter battery radar facility represents NAVFAC Southwest In-House-Design team’s ability to provide buildings that are representative of an equivalent quality of life for our war fighter,” said Robert Rogers, NAVFAC Southwest In-House-Design senior architect. “Providing responsible sustainable design and meeting programmatic requirements by the end user while respecting budgetary requirements was a challenge due to the site being on a hillside and being shared with another project.” 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. Partnering on this project was facilitated by Neal Flesner of Ventura Consulting Group. Click here to learn more
