Naval Air Station

Lemoore, CA

Stronghold partnered with Ravatt, Albrecht and Associates on this Design/Build Renovation of the 63,277 sf Bachelor’s Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) Buildings 14 & 15 at Naval Air Station in Lemoore, CA. This project entailed renovating two (2) three-story BEQ buildings with central connecting core structure, and converting the 130 bedroom units from two bedroom rooms into 66 one bedroom living units, providing each unit with its own bathroom and providing the units with new private kitchen/dining and laundry areas.

The project required significant structural and ATFP upgrades and incorporated complete new plumbing, mechanical, electrical and fire alarm systems throughout, as well as all new Exterior Insulated Finish System (EIFS) and new interior finishes. Another Green Success Project for the Stronghold Team –this fast track design/build project was certified as a LEED Gold by the United States Green Building Council. Completed on-time with no change orders and with Stronghold and their team of subcontractors tallying up over 65,000 project labor hours with zero (0) safety incidents!


“Stronghold Engineering executed this contract on-time and on-budget. Being that this contract was a project funded with American Reinvestment & Recovery Act (ARRA) monies, it had an extremely challenging duration period. During this time, Stronghold both designed and constructed all elements of the project using a fast-track, scheduling technique that proved to be 100% effective. The renovated barracks are by far the best living quarters NAS Lemoore has to offer its sailors and marines; moreover,these facilities are considered the “standard” for future BEQ construction, an accolade that Stronghold earned through many months of hard work and dedication to excellence and quality ontrol. Stronghold Engineering also exceeded the Navy expectation by achieving LEED Gold for this facility when only Silver was contractually required. Lastly, they completed this project with ZERO safety incidences and earned a NAVFAC Safety Through Awards and Recognition (STAR) Award.”
