The 2D Combat Battalion Complex site consisted of approximately 75 acres and is located in the Courthouse Bay area of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. The project constructed 7 buildings (Headquarters, Supply Warehouse, Vehicle Maintenance, HazMat, Electric/Communications, Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Training and Covered Storage), a large concrete tactical vehicle parking area, an 835 vehicle surface parking lot, intersection improvements to accommodate the increased traffic, a tactical vehicle wash rack, and a large training dig pit. Utility infrastructure included approximately 4,000 LF of gravity sewer and approximately 8,250 LF of water line.
Cape Fear Engineering responsibilities included design survey, utility design, and utility permitting along with stormwater management design/permitting, erosion control design/permitting, traffic control plans, and roadway design/transportation management plans. Cape Fear Engineering provided construction documents including plans, specifications, and design analysis with calculations for all aspects of civil site and utility work associated with the project. Water Extension, Gravity Sanitary Sewer Extension, Erosion and Sedimentation Control and State Stormwater permits were applied for and obtained from NCDEQ.
Coordination with the Base Environmental Management Department was required as the compound is the former location of a remediated dump site from the 1950’s and is adjacent to a historic firing range.
Throughout construction Cape Fear Engineering provided periodic construction observations and inspections of utility installation and has provided Professional Engineer’s Certifications to NCDEQ for water distribution, sewer collection, and stormwater management permits.
