Stellar Wins Two Excellence in Construction Awards for Marine Corps Projects

Stellar provided full design-build services for the award-winning projects, both located at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (July 14, 2014) – Stellar, a fully integrated firm focused on design, engineering, construction and mechanical services worldwide, has received two Excellence in Construction Awards from the Florida First Coast Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors. Stellar provided full design-build services for the award-winning projects, both located at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Lejeune Inn Temporary Lodging Facility

Stellar renovated Camp Lejeune’s 75,000-square-foot Lejeune Inn Temporary Lodging Facility, a standalone facility designed to accommodate temporary assigned duty and permanent change-of-station personnel, as well as family and friends of active-duty Marines. In addition to renovating the existing 90-bed facility, Stellar built a 50-bed addition while the main facility remained open for business.

Guest room updates included motion-activated air conditioning units, new floor and wall finishes, and upgraded plumbing fixtures. Exterior building upgrades included new lighting, doors and signage, in addition to storm drains, utilities, lighting, and walkways. The project achieved LEED Gold certification, which exceeds the military’s standard of pursuing LEED Silver certification.

Wallace Creek Marine Mart

Stellar also constructed a new 13,803-square-foot convenience mart, maximizing efficiencies while adhering to the regulations of the Marine Corp Community Services (MCCS) Retail Standards, the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC), LEED, and the Camp Lejeune Base Exterior Appearance Plan (BEAP).

Stellar reduced the facility’s carbon footprint by selecting materials for their energy performance and ability to reduce the building’s urban “heat island” effect. Photovoltaic solar roof panels were installed, offsetting 13 percent of energy costs. Additional sustainable design features include water-saving bathroom fixtures, indoor air quality systems, onsite recycling and ponds for storm water management. The project has been submitted to the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) for LEED Silver Certification.

“We’re grateful to the Florida First Coast Chapter of the Associated Builders and Contractors for recognizing these projects,” said Richard M. Lovelace, Stellar Senior Vice President. “It’s rewarding to build high-quality facilities that will benefit our nation’s military personnel.”
