Marine Corps Base Camp, Lejeune, N.C

Marine Corps Base CampAdditional stimulus funding created an increase in government projects during 2010. One such project was reroofing an officers' headquarters building at Camp Lejeune.

ATAS International Inc. supplied 14,208 square feet of Dutch Seam (MRD150), 0.040-inch aluminum standing-seam roofing panels; 8,136 square feet of Design Wall (DSF120), 0.040-inch aluminum 12-inch flush wall panels; and 6,856 square feet of vented Wind-lok Soffit (MPV), 0.032-inch aluminum 12-inch soffit panels. All materials are finished in a Sandstone color. The metal roofing, which was selected by the roofing contractor, was installed over the existing flat roof.

The camp was built in 1941 and now has: 156,000 acres; 11 miles of beach for amphibious operations; 32 gun positions; 48 tactical landing zones; three state-of-the-art training facilities for Military Operations in Urban Terrain; and 80 live fire ranges, including the Greater Sandy Run Training Area. About 180,000 people populate the camp as a civilian employee, retiree, active duty member or dependent.

"Government projects have many more requirements in terms of the submittal process, performance specifications and warranties," says Jim Bush, vice president of sales for ATAS. "But it is all worth it in the end to have a successful project that impacts the work and lives of members of the military."
