Location: Fort Lee, Virginia
Michael Baker International provided planning, architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District, for design-build of the U.S. Army Sustainment Center of Excellence Headquarters building. This four-story, 230,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art administrative and training facility supports Fort Lee's role as the "home of logistics" for the U.S. Army; it serves as the headquarters for the army's Combined Arms Support Command, the Quartermaster Center and School, the Ordnance Center and School, and the Transportation Center and School. It features efficient, open-plan administrative spaces, private offices, training facilities, conference space, a multipurpose auditorium, and a canteen. The integration of brick tile to precast concrete panel served well for the blast-resistive qualities of the building's primary skin, and its fabrication could be accelerated, as was needed for this fast-track project; construction was completed one month ahead of schedule. Michael Baker used Revit, a state-of-the-art building information management (BIM) software application, for architecture, interior design, and space planning. The facility achieved LEED® Silver certification.
