Share Article

Universal Modular Building Solutions, Inc. (UMBS) is awarded contract for a third Combat Convoy Simulator Building to be used by the U.S. Marine Corps for training purposes at MCB 29 Palms, California. Universal Modular has also been awarded three 1600 square foot modular buildings to be used as After Action Review Buildings to be located at MCB 29 Palms, California, MCB Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii and MCB Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. These buildings will be used in support of the Supporting Arms Virtual Trainer (SAVT) Program and will be delivered and completed within the next 6 months. Each Convoy Simulator building is designed and built for simulated combat convoy missions, providing real life conditions. This is Universal Modular's third building to be delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps for this program, the first two being delivered to MCB Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, both which are currently in use. Each building is approximately 5,500 square feet and features a full 12' floor to ceiling height to allow for head clearance for the roof gunner on the vehicles. The buildings are constructed using a steel structure for the floor, walls and ceiling. Wall coverings are taped and painted drywall in each theatre and vinyl-clad drywall in all other areas. The buildings house 6 octagonal theatres that include the cab and body structure of an actual Humvee vehicle. According to Rick Bartolotti, Universal Modular CEO, "This type of training facility is cost efficient as well as effective for training. Construction of these buildings is very rapid at a modern production facility staffed by a skilled labor force, advancing our troops' access to necessary training facilities."

Universal Modular works closely with government project managers, technical reps, contracting officers and end users to develop a large range of modular buildings and prefabricated building solutions. The buildings are of comparable or superior quality when compared to buildings constructed by conventional construction methods.

Universal Modular will be exhibiting at the 2009 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in November. Visit their booth #2586 to learn how Universal Modular Building Solutions can work for you.
