A strong design-build partnership has led to three LEED Gold certified projects at Fort Lee.
GuernseyTingle shares a great relationship with general contractor Leebcor Services. Initially having worked together on commercial projects, both companies decided to partner together on design-build work in the federal arena. Years later, this fruitful partnership has produced dozens of projects, including a handful at Fort Lee, located just south of Richmond.
Our first design-build project with Fort Lee was a dining facility, which was also the first undertaking by the Corps of Engineers Norfolk District to achieve a LEED Gold certification.
We also partnered with Leebcor Services on the 508th Transportation Company Operations Facility, which supports the Army Transportation School. In addition to administrative offices, the building contains an arms vault, classrooms, equipment issue rooms, and a high bay storage space. The site included an extensive hard stand for military vehicles. Through diligent design and construction monitoring, this project also achieved LEED Gold certification.
Our third Fort Lee project was the 49th Quartermaster Company Operations Facility, which provides administration spaces, meeting spaces, a large troop equipment warehouse, and secure storage areas. The site features a 3,000 sq. ft. open canopy for weather-protected equipment staging. In addition to aggressive energy savings for the building, the site features Low Impact Development methodologies that contributed to another LEED Gold certification.
