Run through the VA’s Office of Construction & Facilities Management (CFM), this $28M project will provide a Phase 4 Expansion of Dallas Fort Worth National Cemetery in Texas. Services for this expansion will include design programming, minor master planning, schematic design development, construction period documents, general studies, cost estimating services, construction phase services, site visitation, and other A/E services.
The purpose of this project is to enable an existing national cemetery to continue to provide burial services for eligible veterans. In accordance with the master plan for the entire 640-acre site, this project will develop approximately 30 acres of land to provide approximately 19,000 gravesites, including both casket and cremation sites in new burial sections and redevelopment to more efficient interment methods in existing sections. This project will provide for an additional 10-year inventory of preplaced crypts for casketed interments and both in-ground sites and columbarium niches for cremated inurnments as well as various cemetery improvements. This project will convert the less efficient traditional casket gravesites to the more efficient pre-placed crypts to provide for an additional 10-year inventory.
In addition, the project sets out to provide a new standalone GIS/GPS system in accordance with NCA Spec Sections.
Improvements/updates will also be made to the existing irrigation system, including installing wells, ponds and pumps to provide non-potable water for irrigation, connecting irrigation to the main system for backup functionality, and adding water quality structures adjacent to existing streams and ponds.
