The facility’s interior needed to be welcoming, without feeling like a hospital or institution, but sustainable and durable for the long haul as well. only four additional points would bring them into LEED Platinum range. By making some minor modifications, and getting documentation for factors such as the levels of reused and locally sourced materials, the team was able to qualify for LEED Platinum certification. A ceremony recognizing this accomplishment took place on April 21, 2011. The final structure, as well as the landscaping, used all possible strategies to reach this level. Natural light and air circulation reduce energy costs, while the low-maintenance landscaping relies on native plants for cost-effective maintenance. All materials used in construction were chosen to reach a maximum useful life before requiring substantive repairs or replacement. LESSONS LEARNED Hulan cites three lessons he learned from the project. First, make sure that the entire team is familiar with the client’s (in this case, NAVFAC’s) requirements. Second, keep an eye on the design, to ensure design and construction mesh. Finally, look for opportunities to enhance the project. The final project has many rewards. The Barnhart Balfour Beatt y team provided the Wounded Warrior Battalion with an environment some say is the nicest place they’ve ever lived. The residents appreciate the quality of their temporary home. These young men have treated the building and its furnishings with respect, a good sign that it will continue to serve future Wounded Warriors. / SNAPSHOT Owner: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest Central IPT Design-Builder: Barnhart Balfour Beatty General Contractor: Barnhart Balfour Beatty Architect: Cass, Sowatsky, Chapman + Associates Architects Engineers: Seyed Mehdi Rasti Consulting Structural Engineering (structural) Michael Wall Engineering (electrical) Calibre Engineering (civil) Stueven Engineering (mechanical) Specialty Contractors: Hasenbeck Interior Design Inc.
