PA Army National Guard / PA Department of General Services / Department of Military and Veterans Affairs
This project included the construction of new Readiness Center/Armory on 20 acres of Department of Military and Veteran’s Affairs (DMVA) land.
The design contract had two phases. Phase 1 included a schematic design/engineering. Phase 2 – site design and construction documents – was awarded to Keller Engineers as part of a Design-Build Contract. The project included numerous design details for security and Anti-Terrorist/Force Protection measures. The project design evolved as construction documents were being finished through negotiations with the DMVA.
Project Uniqueness/Challenges: Rigorous Department of General Services procedures and review processes were required. The redesign of a major storm water conveyance swale was required due to the detection of an unmarked gas main.
[The] entire staff did a wonderful job! We truly appreciate all the hard work in making our bridge project a success and something we can be very proud to have in our township. Bev Sherwood Burns, Supervisor Blacklick Township
