Full-employee-owned engineering, architecture, and construction firm Burns & McDonnell partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton to begin the Moose Creek Restoration Project, restoring unused golf course to be used as a natural riparian protected habitat. The project will also support the environmental and safety improvements made by the Marine Corps Air Stations (MSAS) Camp Pendleton.
Founded in 1898, Burns & McDonnell has 60 offices worldwide, with over 7,600 engineers, architects, scientists, and technologists planning critical infrastructure. They are currently ranked ninth in the top 500 Design Firms in the United States per Engineering News-Record.
Commanding Officer Col. Richard T. Anderson says of the project, “This project not only solves a decades-old aviation safety violation but does so while supporting endangered species and the community.”
Burns & McDonnell plans on removing all inactive structures, including tennis courts and parking lots. Reactivating natural floodplains by implementing a high-flow stream channel and restoring nature to help improve the overall ecosystem and preserve long-term environmental initiatives.
The project is completing the environmental review process, will likely need machinery supply, and is projected to complete 2022. Burns & McDonnell, in partnership with Camp Pendleton, will track progress and restoration after completion with the oversight of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
