Improving America’s Armed Forces Infrastructure

Designing is currently underway for three military projects that Latitude 33 Planning & Engineering has been heavily involved with. Principal Brad Sager and project manager Sean Drake are overseeing Latitude 33’s efforts. All of these projects will enter the construction phase within the next year.

P-328 – F-35 C Facility Addition NAS (Lemoore, CA) – In preparation for the arrival of F-35 fighter jets, Latitude 33 provided A&E services for renovation and additions to Hangar 5 at NAS Lemoore (pictured above). Design responsibilities included surveying, utility rerouting, demolition plans and ultimate condition design.

(Niland, CA)
Navy SEALs conduct advanced-level land warfare training for west coast teams here. Latitude 33 provided civil engineering services for this 45-acre project (pictured below) that included site improvements, clearing, utilities, roadways, water, sewer, storm drainage and magazine compound design. 

MCAS Yuma Pistol and Rifle Range Repair (Yuma, AZ) – Serving as the Corps’ premier aviation training facility, Latitude 33 was called in to refurbish both its pistol and rifle ranges. This Sonoran Desert locale is home to 80 percent of the Corps’ air-to-ground aviation training, meaning the importance of this project (pictured below) can’t be overstated.
