Camp Shield – Baghdad, Iraq – Baghdad, Iraq

christopher provided civil design and Standard Embassy Design (SED) review for Camp Shield. The project involved the construction of temporary containerized housing units and supporting buildings necessary to establish life support and training facilities for Camp Shield in Baghdad, Iraq. The site, approximately 26 acres, was previously a United States Forces-Iraq military compound. The Camp Shield project includes housing pods, perimeter facilities, dining, offices, morale-welfare recreation facility, gym/medical facility, and other support items. The core of the project involved installing government-furnished containerized housing units (CHU) in groups called pods, and erecting an overhead protective cover (OPC) system above them. The CHU pods also have infrastructure for potable and waste water, fire protection, telecommunications and cable television for the Camp Shield complex. christopher worked with HOK and the Department of State on this project.
