BCT Increment 3A 800 Person Dining Facility at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA

Tunista Construction, LLC was awarded the BCT Increment 3A Dining Facility project as a competitive best value selection with the Seattle District of USACE. Tunista is providing comprehensive general construction services for the construction of a new 20,000 square foot dining facility that will serve 800 soldiers and military personnel per day.

As a part of this construction program for the new facility, two 50,000 square foot barracks buildings were demolished, to include the removal and disposal of Asbestos and other hazardous materials. Tunista Construction’s focus on sustainable construction processes and LEED programs resulted in a significant green savings to the project as usable concrete from the previous buildings were recycled into 1,200 cubic yards of material for the new 2.83-acre site.

As a General Contractor, TCL is managing all aspects of the construction and coordinating with a strong performing subcontractor team. The team is managing under the Lean Construction methodology of project delivery and implementing the Last Planner System for weekly, and monthly planning (pull planning). Teams are working at a high level of efficiency through a collaborative effort of communication and project controls.

A core focus for the company is the development of our program at Fort Lewis; Tunista Construction is self-performing all of the civil construction and concrete work at the site. Additionally, TCL is working closely with a heavily coordinated effort with other contractors at adjacent construction sites to maintain a high level of efficiency between our self-performing crews on adjacent contracts.

The kitchen area requires extensive plumbing, electrical, and mechanical scopes of work.
