Services Provided: Construction Staking, As-Built Survey
It was an honor working on the P-396 Barracks for the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, SC. Atlas Surveying provided construction staking and as-built surveys under contract to Cleland Site Prep.
The $85 million complex houses more than 2,000 recruits from the 3rd Recruit Battalion and represents the largest single military construction project in Parris Island history. Several barracks were consolidated into this new complex of four centrally located buildings.
The battalion previously camped out in older facilities built in the 1960s, which limited the number of recruits. The new facility allows the Marine Corps to train more than 500 more recruits, according to The Island Packet.
