U.S. MARINE CORPS – MOUNTAIN WARFARE TRAINING CENTER: FIRE STATION
Above and beyond
A seismic retrofit, interior renovation, and addition on a sloping mountain site. What could be difficult about that? We were able to design a cost-effective engineering solution for the seismic retrofit that created a safe building for the firefighters, as well as recessing a dozen new bedrooms into the hillside that still allowed easy access to the apparatus bay. In a value-add, we promised and delivered a training and observation tower and solar power, all within the proposed budget. The project achieved LEED Silver certification and gratitude from the client.
