Woolpert worked closely with design-build contractor Balfour Beatty on a proposal for a 192-bed, four-story, 122,000-square-foot Warriors in Transition Barracks facility. The facility provides apartment-style living environments designed to meet the specific needs of transitioning soldiers. We designed the complex to be consistent with civilian-sector buildings and to provide various levels of personal privacy and shared accommodations depending on individual capabilities, interests and needs.

The designs met LEED® Silver and anti-terrorism/force protection standards

Woolpert provided full architecture and engineering design services to the 35% level; the designs met LEED® Silver and anti-terrorism/force protection standards. To lower costs and shorten the delivery schedule, we designed the living units as factory-built modules, and we enhanced the attractive and professional appearance of the units with a cohesive building façade and landscape architecture. Woolpert designed the mechanical systems to lower energy use, simplify maintenance and incorporate components such as a heat recovery system, high-efficiency lighting, increased insulation and low-flow fixtures.
