J&S Construction Company has received notice to proceed on an $18.4 million, 74,339 square-foot, maintenance facility for the Department of the Army National Guard Bureau’s Ft. Stewart base, located just outside of Savannah, Ga. This project will be the first pairing between J&S Construction and the Army National Guard.

A firm fixed-price contract, this maintenance facility will include three separate buildings which are all set to be LEED® Silver Certified through the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).  Each building will contain maintenance bays, shops, storage, break room and locker rooms.

The site work will include military vehicle parking, POV parking, access aprons, storm water control/detention, sanitary and industrial waste lines, natural gas lines, electrical and telecom lines and other utilities required for a facility of this type. This project also contains installation of overhead cranes and additional overhead crane support; relocation of fuel tank and commissioning of fuel storage tank.

J&S Construction was selected by the National Guard from numerous proposals because of its low-cost solutions, which has also shown to be effective for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). J&S is currently underway in the construction of two other projects in the government sector, both located at the USACE’s Ft. Campbell base. These projects, an $8.4 million, 30,000 square-foot administration facility and a $12.2 million, 35,290 square-foot vehicle maintenance facility, are also designed to meet LEED Silver requirements through the USGBC.
