The project objective was to improve the physical security of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune by enhancing vehicle entry control and rearranging traffic flow to comply with current anti-terrorism/force protection (AT/FP) standards at the Main Gate and Piney Green Gate.
Improvements included the design and construction of one gate house with inspection canopy and privately owned vehicle (POV) inspection canopy at both entry gates, a visitor center and a truck inspection station with inspection canopy.
Improvements common to both entry gates included the provision of drop arm gates, active and passive vehicle barriers and the upgrade of multiple inbound and outbound travel 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.
