Marine Corps Reserve Center
Lehigh Valley, PA
Under an as-needed services contract with the U.S. Navy, the FST team was responsible for design and construction phase services for a new Marine Corps Reserve Center. The project consists of a new 16,000 sf administration building, 4,500 sf vehicle maintenance facility, a 4,000 sf howitzer storage building, and 11 acres of site development. The project is located in an area prone to Karst formations and sinkholes and, as such, required extensive geotechnical testing and site remediation.
The project required extensive permitting to comply with the local regulations and is designed for LEED certification.
