Created in direct response to 9/11, the Anti-Terrorism (AT) Battalion, 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (MEB), 2D Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF) at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, is a one-of-a-kind readiness force in the global war on terror. As a new unit with no existing storage equipment, the Battalion was faced with the challenge of constructing and outfitting a storage facility to meet their operational needs. Limited space, with two moves anticipated in the future, was also an issue.
Ben McCollum of Patterson Pope, the Spacesaver Area Contractor, was brought in to develop storage solutions for weapons and a multitude of optics, including night vision goggles, laser aiming lights and thermal weapons sights.
“They needed a highly organized, space-efficient and secure method of storing these very expensive pieces of equipment,” said McCollum. “Spacesaver’s Universal Weapons Rack (UWR storage system) mounted on stationary and high-density mobile shelving systems, proved the ideal weapons storage solution for many of the armory’s evolving needs.”
