LEED: Silver Certification
The silver certification required the reuse of materials, utilizing materials with specific recycled contents, regional materials, and rapidly renewable materials. Construction waste management is also a keep component of the LEED and we met this goal through our construction practices.
About This Project: The 124,692-square-foot, four-story cadet housing facility involved complex upgrades to meet current codes.
As a building that was first completed in 1895, its structural layouts were not configured with ample space or passageways for modern building systems. Existing structural flooring consisted of terracotta masonry archways that spanned between floor beams as low as 7 feet/7 inches, with 60-inch-thick structural brick masonry walls located throughout the floors.
The existing conditions required an enormous amount of coordination to overcome and we worked closely with Kokolakis and the Army Corps of Engineers to do so.
