The North Wallace Creek Regimental Complex project constructed a three story, multi-wing Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ), Armory and Parking Garage along with onsite and offsite utility and infrastructure upgrades in the Wallace Creek area of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.
The project site was approximately 35 acres and included approximately 1,750 LF of gravity sewer and approximately 5,100 LF of water lines along with other site feature and amenities.
The site was previously developed as a skeet shooting range requiring careful coordination near existing legacy infrastructure.
Due to contaminated soil from the skeet range, careful coordination was required with the Base Environmental Management Department and a contractor performing soil remediation. Additionally an encroachment permit approval was obtained from Progress Energy for site features and utilities placed within the existing overhead transmission line easement.
