MCB Quantico, The Basic School (TBS)
New Student Officer Living Quarters,
Quantico, Virginia

Randall Lamb will be working with Harper Construction Company, and Cass | Sowatsky | Chapman + Associates to provide MEP engineering services for the design/build construction of two (2) new student-officer living quarters buildings on The Basic School (TBS) campus. “TBS” educates newly commissioned or appointed officers to prepare them for duty as a company-grade officer in the Fleet Marine Force.


This project is considered Phases5-6 of an eight-building replacement plan and includes two 78,000 gsf buildings (P-566, P-567). Each building contains living areas, support spaces, offices, meeting and conference rooms, as well as laundry, housekeeping and public restrooms.  Each building will house 100-124 apartments with 5 administrative units. Each apartment utilizes a single sleeping room for two people with a shared bathroom configuration. The Administrative module is identical in size to allow future flexibility. Specific design elements include designing geothermal heat pump systems mated with an existing base-wide HTHW system.

Project includes BIM modeling requirements to an “LOD 300” level, as defined by AIA, for certain aspects of the project needing close coordination (mechanical rooms, etc.) The facility and all site features shall be designed and constructed using USGBC LEED-NC and will achieve a Silver Certification.
