As part of a $50 million Task Order Contract via our joint venture company, AKHI Construction, LLC, TMG provided general and civil construction services for the design and construction of extensive paving, anti-terrorism force protection (AT/FP) measures, and vehicle access controls along South Loop Road at Campus East.
The TMG-AKHI team performed construction of South Loop Road as the main access road to the client facility. South Loop Road also connected to I-95, I-95 HOV lanes and North Loop Road on the campus. The work involved grading, drainage, paving, security improvements, and all necessary road construction to open the South Loop Road.
The scope involved extensive infrastructure work, including the installation of ductbanks containing electrical and communications cables. It is designed to allow expansion for future facilities at minimum cost and inconvenience to the customers served. The scope also included clearing and grubbing, performance of all cut and fill requirements under strict compaction specifications, and installation of stormwater piping and structures (including two retention ponds).
Rough grading for the South Loop Road was followed by finish grading, paving, drainage, security improvements and other final road appurtenances, such as the installation and commissioning of all security and traffic barriers and lighting, necessary to complete the road for use. In addition, TMG performed extensive testing of subgrade soils located directly beneath all proposed pavement sections every 250 LF along roadways and every 10,000 SF within parking areas in accordance with ASTM D 1883.
The project also involved the design and construction of a new Traffic Control Point (TCP) leading to the South Entrance of the facility. The scope included installation of a variety of ACP equipment and the infrastructure to support its function, construction of a new lane with new AIE islands, and other upgrades compliant with applicable United Facilities Guideline Specifications (UFGS) and Army Access Control Points Standard Definitive Design (ACP SDD).
The project team also installed 80 kW and 130 kW Generac Generators with automatic transfer switches to power the equipment and booth at each Traffic Control Point. Other passive barriers included VDOT Traffic-rated Guardrail (GR-2) with various end conditions, VDOT-rated steel cable guardrail, and dozens of K-12 static bollards.
