Project Description

Design/Build Construction of the MCCS Mini-Mall and Fuel Station, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) Twentynine Palms, CA. This 7,200-s.f. Mini-Mall Complex consisted of a C-Store, Barber Shop, Laundromat including all utilities and site development, providing a complete and useable facility. The core spaces of the C-Store are the sales area, food station, wine and liquor section, video/DVD rental, restrooms, office space, refrigerated coolers, storage, loading, and service areas. The building footprint also included a separate Barber Shop and a Laundromat.

The Fuel Station for this project included a 3,500-s.f. Canopy Structure to provide covering for two (2) islands with six (6) Multi-Product Dispensers (MPDs), three (3) 20,000-gallon Underground Storage Tanks (USTs), a Monument Price Sign, a 3-Terminal Point-of-Sale (POS) System, and a Tank and Continuous Monitoring System.

Notable Accomplishment

Western Pump’s design/build team worked closely with all project stakeholders to meet all project requirements while staying within the cost limitation ($4,900,000). To accomplish this, a concept design workshop (CDW) was conducted to coordinate the design elements, examine project functions and requirements, quality and life safety costs, analyze alternate design concepts, expose and resolve project issues, and develop the final conceptual design.

This collaborative effort resulted in a state-of-the-art facility built to comply with California’s stringent regulations including Phase-I and Phase-II Enhanced Vapor Recovery (EVR), and Assembly Bill 2481 (AB-2481).
