Joint Base Andrews Family Housing

Camp Springs, MD

As part of the effort to replace the military’s inventory of obsolete and inadequate housing with safe, comfortable homes for military families, JB Andrews hopes to rehabilitate existing units and provide new units, producing high quality housing for military families. Bowman has provided engineering, landscape architecture, arborist, and surveying services for this design/build housing privatization contract that includes demolition of approximately 850 houses, renovation of approximately 140 houses, and new construction of approximately 240 houses. Bowman prepared demolition plans for areas proposed for redevelopment of residential units, and in areas in which residences are being demolished to make room for future commercial and office uses. Site engineering design plans were prepared which included layout and grading of roadways and housing units, utility design, and stormwater management approach with a focus on water quality in redevelopment areas. Technical review and quality control of final engineering documents were also provided.

Landscape architectural services included preparation of exterior landscape and hardscape design for the individual housing units, neighborhood common open spaces and amenity areas, sports courts and playgrounds, and the main community center and pool facility with water play area for children, a BBQ grilling area, as well as a public memorial garden walkway.

Survey work included required topographic surveys, improvement surveys, and an ALTA/ACSM land title survey. A detailed tree survey was also provided that located and identified all trees on the site with a diameter of larger than six inches. Bowman’s team of arborists prepared tree inventory and preservation plans.
