PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Ravatt Albrecht & Associates renovated this 40,000 sq. ft., $8M LEED self-certified, 3-story Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) building to provide new and refurbished housing for approximately 600 Marines being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Work included coordinating of all design, demolition, preconstruction, construction, and close-out for this fast-track project with a previously defined budget.
