This $8.5M project allows for up to 20,000 SF of new space while extensively remodeling and relocating existing spaces. Triple C developed solutions that mitigate the impact to adjacent sites, addresses historical impacts, and provides added value to the campus, such as relocating the Canteen.
Per the VHA design directives, Triple C addressed VA requirements for physical security, as well as those governing the security of pharmaceutical materials and substances. As an energy management measure, sub-metering of utilities was incorporated into the design. Third parties provided fire protection engineers and blast consultants.
Triple C’s design provides full accessibility for vehicular and pedestrian traffic, while maintaining sensitivity to the future impacts on traffic due to the new parking structure. Triple C developed signage plans to facilitate wayfinding for pedestrians and vehicles. Requirements for building access, construction staging, and phasing were included.
