Culpeper National Cemetery
The US Veterans Administration National Cemetery System, Culpeper, Virginia National Cemetery expansion consists of the development of over 12 acres of land adjoining the existing cemetery being developed as a National Veterans Cemetery. The development includes a new Maintenance Building and Maintenance Yard, an Interment Shelter, and an Information / Rest Room Building. Site development requires the following features:
- Grave site monumentation for 6,500 graves.
- 1,050 feet of asphalt road.
- Water main extension.
- Sanitary sewer extension.
- Irrigation system.
- Other decorative and functional site features standard to a Virginia Cemetery.
Culpeper National Cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the National Veterans Cemetery system. It was founded on 17 acres of farm land in 1867 following the Civil War for Union and Confederate Veterans. Due to the 20th Century conflicts, especially World War II, the capacity of the site will be reached this year. The US Veterans Administration National Cemetery system that operates and maintains Culpeper National Veterans Cemetery and cemeteries throughout the world, has requested the services of AMT to assist with the expansion of Culpeper Cemetery and facilities from California to Florida.
- SiteManager Training Committee
- User Testing Committee Implementation Advisory Group
- Parallel Training and Documentation Committee
- Parallel Participants in Richmond and Hampton Roads
We coordinated testing and training within the Richmond District and are coordinating Pilot training and software installations for Richmond scheduled for March and April. The instructional materials cover all program areas involved with construction management, from initialization of the contracts at VDOT's Central Office all the way through to finalization of the contract by auditors. Due to AMT's role through the years as technical support for construction inspection staff, we were able to incorporate recommendations from field personnel that resulted in more beneficial instructional materials. This will be seen throughout the manual and training materials.
The end result of this project:
AMT'S ROLE: AMT is performing resident inspection for 14 months of construction activities including recordation of construction progress, payroll and materials verification, monitoring and enforcement of safety operations, recording daily activities, and performing construction quality controls of completed construction.
WHAT MAKES THIS PROJECT UNIQUE? These inspection services are usually performed by a Veterans Administration employee, yet due to the inspector's and AMT's exceptional performance for the National Cemetery System, AMT was asked to do the inspection for the Culpeper National Cemetery expansion.
