Harkins Builders of Marriottsville, Md., broke ground in August on the $68.4-million Quantico Phase II Student Quarters and Instruction Facility at Quantico, Va. The design-build project includes two student quarters buildings, with a total of 516 beds, for the Basic School at Marine Base Quantico.
Stanmyre & Noel Architects of Reston, Va., and VOA Architects of Chicago designed the buildings to meet antiterrorism force protection and progressive collapse requirements. The buildings use a concrete plank bearing on concrete masonry wall system, with brick skin and metal roofing.
The project also includes a 73,890-sq-ft training facility and administration building, with four 300-seat lecture halls, six classrooms and a large training room. The structure contains auditoriums in a one-story section and administration offices in a two-story section. The exterior will be brick, highlighted with decorative precast, and the roof will be standing-seam metal to match the adjacent structures.
The team aims for LEED Silver certification, with targets of 30% energy-use reduction and 20% water-use reduction.
