An award- winning design/build facility

As the Design Architect, CR developed the exterior design and construction drawings for this Marine Corps Reserve Center and vehicle maintenance facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  This design/build facility was designed for LEED Silver certification. The sustainable design features an exterior shell of insulated, pre-cast concrete panels which provides excellent thermal massing and meets the requirements of anti-terrorism standards for buildings UFC-4-010-01.  The low sloped roof was designed with a high SRI rating to reflect the solar heat and keep the building cool.  The project required close coordination with all key stakeholders-U.S. Navy, Marines, Air Force and the Army Corps of Engineers.
