Fort Jackson National Cemetery
The Fort Jackson National Cemetery consists of 585 acres adjacent to Percival Road in Columbia, South Carolina. The project was completed in multiple phases and included the addition of 5,000 full-casket gravesites, 4,200 preplaced crypts, 5,000 in-ground cremation sites, and 2,000 columbarium niches. The project also consists of several structures, including a 4,500-square foot administration and public information center, 5,266-square foot maintenance building, 2 committal service shelters, 10 double-sided columbarium walls, flag plaza, and memorial walk. Spire assisted a subcontractor with the preparation of a Request for Equitable Adjustment (REA) to substantiate issues and quantify impacts related to the construction of Phase 1B of the Fort Jackson National Cemetery project. Spire’s scope of work included performing a schedule delay analysis, cost and change order analysis, and quantification of damages. These analyses included review and evaluation of change orders, schedules, and additional contemporaneous documents.
