Israeli Defense Force Artillery Training Facilities

Southern Israel

As Israel’s most important artillery training centers, the Israeli Defense Force uses this artillery base to operate its medium and long-range artillery network.

Conti was responsible for the design and construction of more than 20 facilities and structures on this artillery base. The project team constructed an instructional training building, a three-story barrack facility, a two-story office building, three artillery vehicle parking lots, an obstacle course, a dining facility with large kitchen capable of supplying more than 1,000 meals a day in five dining halls, an energy production center, and a high-voltage electrical center.

Work included all required utilities, storm drainage, communications, electric, HVAC, fire protection/ alarm systems, roadways and walkways, exterior building lighting, and site development.

In addition, Conti conducted an investigation for contamination of soils, pavements, and other site features. As hazardous materials were discovered, including asbestos, they were removed and disposed of according to applicable laws and regulations.

Although official certification was not required by USACE, Conti’s design of this project met LEED Silver requirements. The team performed value engineering changes, including merging three facilities into one, and maintained the original project schedule despite additional design reviews.

Conti received high performance evaluations of “Very Good” from the USACE for its work on this project.

Conti was responsible for the design, managed a local designer of record, and performed as the Design Quality Manager for the architectural and engineering services necessary for the preparation of construction contract plans and specifications to build the facilities in this project.
