Stellar Begins Three Military Projects

Stellar, an architecture, engineering, construction and mechanical services firm, has begun work on three military projects.

On-Base Marine Corps Accommodations
Stellar began work in January 2012 on a temporary lodging facility for the U.S. Marine Corps at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Stellar is providing full design-build services for the standalone 50-room facility, which will accommodate temporary assigned duty and permanent change-of-station personnel, as well as family and friends of active-duty Marines.

The new accommodations will complement Camp Lejeune’s existing 90-room temporary lodging facility, which currently operates at a 96-percent occupancy rate. With the existing facility remaining open throughout construction, Stellar developed a meticulous construction-site safety plan to ensure the safety of residents and staff. The project is scheduled to be complete by June 2013, with the facility opening the following month.

The 30,462-square-foot, three-story building is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification standards. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, is the industry’s leading certification program for the design, construction and operation of green facilities.

Marine Corps Convenience Mart
Stellar began construction in March 2012 on a 4,300-square-foot convenience mart on Marine Corps Air Station, Kaneohe Bay. The building, scheduled for completion January 2013, will achieve LEED Silver certification.

Located across from the base’s flight line, where Navy and Marine aircraft are serviced and maintained, the front of the single-story building will include a curved feature wall made of architectural metal panels with MCX Marine Mart signage. The building will meet the Marine Corp’s comprehensive building standards—which encompass details such as colors, finishes, materials and more—while also complying with LEED requirements.

Schofield Barracks Outdoor Recreation Center (Army)
Also in Hawaii, Stellar is building an Outdoor Recreation Center for the Army at Schofield Barracks. Soldiers and their families can rent boats, canoes, kayaks, coolers, camping gear, scuba-dive equipment, and more. In addition, soldiers and their families can participate in outdoor adventure trips such as scuba diving, camping and hiking organized through the center.

Stellar is providing full design-build services for the project, which began October 2011 and is scheduled to be complete September 2012. The facility is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification standards.

“It’s rewarding to build facilities that will benefit service personnel and their families,” said Richard M. Lovelace, Divisional Vice President, Stellar Commercial. “We especially enjoy building facilities that help improve the lives of soldiers outside of combat zones.”

Stellar’s military experience has steadily grown over the past few years and includes exchanges, fuel stations, youth activity centers, recreational centers, golf courses and more. Stellar holds a Non-Appropriated Fund (NAF) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract with the U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM), Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) services, which funded the projects.
