Pistol Qualification Course
Located on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson (JBER), Alaska, this project included construction of a standard combat pistol qualification course (CPQC) consisting of fifteen fully automated outdoor firing lanes, each with 8 precast concrete below grade stationary target emplacements (120 emplacements total), heated operations and storage building (800 square feet), lighted bleacher enclosure with two each 14’x14’ roll-up doors (720 square feet), heated general instructional building (800 square feet), heated ammunition breakdown building (120 square feet), and site improvements (including heat traced storm drainage lines for each target emplacement, pedestrian trails, parking areas, and landscaping). Prior to construction, the contract required clearing and grubbing of the 5 acre site and demolition of an existing pistol qualification course consisting of 8 outdoor lanes. All new target lanes were constructed above grade between 15 concrete retaining walls. All targetry data transfer cabling (both fiber optic and Category 5e cables) was installed below grade. Primary subcontractors included earthwork, concrete, masonry, and electrical trades.
This contract required implementation of the US Corps of Engineers Three-Phase Quality Control System, including a full-time Quality Control System Manager (QCSM). Jay-Brant was required to develop and implement a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) in accordance with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation Construction General Permit (ACGP).
Jay-Brant completed this $3.3 million project on-time and on-budget in one construction season.
