The project objective was to improve the physical security of MCAS New River by enhancing vehicle entry control and rearranging traffic flow to comply with current anti-terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) standards at the main entry gate.
Improvements included the design and construction of a new gate house with vehicle inspection canopy, a privately owned vehicle (POV) inspection canopy with pedestrian shelters, a truck inspection canopy and an overwatch tower.
Other improvements included the provision of drop arm gates, active and passive vehicle barriers and the upgrade of multiple inbound and outbound lanes to better accommodate the daily volume of traffic. This project was designed to achieve a USGBC LEED Certified rating.
Joseph Bergin Architect P.C. provided architectural design services and construction documentation for the project, as well as contract administration services.
