Military Engineering / Range Design


HSW Engineering has extensive history of federal facility work and is one of the contractors under the Range and Training Land Program (RTLP) for the US Army Corps of Engineers to provide full discipline A/E support services across the U.S.

We have a continuous record of success with military projects, specifically those supporting military planning, estimating, and programming firing ranges and training facilities. Since 2003, HSW has performed range and facility design work under 48 different task orders involving six Districts and 11 installations. HSW has lead Charrettes to prepare 15% design/DD3086’s; lead Charrettes to prepare 14 Project Definition Reports PDRs); prepared 6 35% Design / Build packages; completed 30 100% Full Designs; and performed specialty services (R&D, geotechnical, surveying, standard designs) on 30 projects.  

Many of our design professionals are trained in MCACES and MII and have experience using PCCost and PAX in the development of PDRs and 3086 estimates. We have used PCCost 6 for the development of costs for Project Definition Reports (PDRs) on 11 projects. We are currently using the MII 2008 Cost Book and latest edition of MII on 8 FY11 Range Projects.  

In addition, The HSW Team provides a unique blend of expertise in engineering design, environmental compliance, permit acquisition and knowledge of range requirements and military facilities as users, trainers, and developers. HSW has acquired a national reputation for using innovative and streamlined approaches to assess and resolve a broad range of complex engineering and environmental concerns.
