Role in US National Defense

Camp Bullis Military Training Reservation is a US Army training camp used primarily as maneuvering grounds for US Army, Air Force, and Marine combat units. It is also a field training site for the various medical units stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center at nearby Fort Sam Houston.


Since the land was purchased in 1906 by the US government, it has been used as a maneuvers and training grounds for troops based at Fort Sam Houston. As operations at Camp Bullis expanded, the number of buildings increased and all aspects of the facilities were continually renovated to reflect advances in technology and troop safety, including the installation of Life, Health, and Safety (LHS) systems in the 1960s. To maintain their efficacy and compliance, Camp Bullis LHS systems are regularly assessed and renovated as needed. This contract awarded a CMS 8(a) joint venture the opportunity to renovate the LHS system of Building 5900, a community service facility on Base that houses a theater and dressing room.

The scope of this project also included renovation of the DLA Fuel Station, which required placing easements and installing wastewater lines, new water lines, new fire hydrants, a concrete-encased duct for electrical lines, new overhead and underground electrical lines, asphalt driveway approaches, curbs, and gutters.
