Marine Forces Reserve Headquarters

Federal City, Louisiana | 411,000 sf | $2m Roof Only

The Marine Forces Reserve Northern Command (MARFORRES) headquarters consolidates six commands in one 411,000 sq. ft. building. GCAG played a lead role on the design team, including roof and envelope consulting services for both Woodward Design + Build and for the Marine Forces Reserve, contracted through USACE Charleston.

GCAG assisted Woodward with design and selection of roofing materials, reviewed shop drawings, conducted on-site meetings and provided Quality Assurance during construction. GCAG was also engaged by Woodward to review fenestrations, wall sill flashings, panel joint sealants, placement of insulation and to conduct a vapor analysis.

The Marine Forces Reserve, through USACE Charleston, directly engaged GCAG to do a detailed investigation of the entire building envelope and roof, including three outbuildings. GCAG provided site inspection/observation of roof installation during construction. The project included monolithic liquid roofing with plaza decks, modified bitumen, LEED compliant reflective coating and metal roofing systems. A 20 year warranty was obtained.
