Military Range Facilities

SES's military range construction experience includes:

  • Range design and construction
  • Firing shelter/storage building construction
  • Infrastructure for electronically controlled targets
  • Berm construction and repair
  • Drainage and surface water control
  • Concrete repair and restoration
  • Contaminated soil removal
  • Demolition and recycling of outdated structures

Former firing ranges frequently contain unexploded ordnance and lead contamination in soil, and outdated facilities may no longer meet modern safety requirements. SES can renovate these facilities and bring them into compliance by removing ordnance and contamination, installing new target equipment, performing earthwork to increase berm height and by protecting nearby surface water from potential impact.

Featured Projects

DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY INDOOR FIRING RANGE -  Oak Ridge, Tennessee
SES placed more than 25,000 cubic yards of earthen material to prepare a site for the Department of Energy's largest indoor firing range.  We constructed a 18,560 sq. ft. state-of-the-art range featuring programmable light levels, target locations and “running man” scenarios.

CONTAMINATED SOIL EXCAVATION AT SKEET RANGE - Fort Gordon, Georgia
Rremoved 20,000 cubic yards of soil and debris following delineation of polyaromatic hydrocarbon and metals contamination in soil and groundwater.

PELHAM RANGE - Fort McClellan, Alabama
SES designed and constructed a new firing course with 15 lanes and electronically activated targets. We also demolished and removed the existing ammunition breakdown building, constructed a new building, performed lead-abatement, converted a building interior to storage use and installed a new public address system. In another project we constructed a military training obstacle course, creating obstacles with pressure-treated poles and nets for troops in fitness training.
