Project: Combined Arms Collective Training Facility (CACTF)

Client:Department of the Army
Location:Joint Base Lewis-McChord
Final Completion Date:November 2004

This project is the largest training facility of its kind in the nation. It includes improvements to an existing shoot house, new construction of a breach house, and a live-fire CACTF complex with associated After Action Review Facility. A total of 52 small buildings, mostly one and two story, makes up the small town now affectionately referred to as "Styker Town." The work also included electrical utilities and approximately 100 acres of grading. The facility is utilized for simultaneous use by up to four company or squad-sized elements, with periodic scheduling for larger training events. The CACTF is designed to support battalion through brigade-sized training events. Not only did Pease Construction receive the AGC Excellence in Construction Award for 2004 for this project, but Col Barry G. Halverson, and Mr. John Weller, Head of Range Control presented a Commander's coin for Excellence to our Phase 1 Superintendent, Steve Kathman and Col. Robert B. Brown, Commander for all the troops in the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, presented yet another coin to Pease Construction. These coins are only presented to non-military personnel as honorary awards for services or accomplishment that significantly assist or support Army functions, services, or operations.
