Since 2015, AGS has provided the US Navy with Architecture/Engineering design services for buildings and facilities including various Air Force Bases (AFB) across the Western U.S including Hill AFB, Travis AFB, Edwards AFB and Vandenberg AFB. For Hill AFB:Navy Operational Support Center, Hill Air Force Base, Ogden. Utah. AGS developed the Basis of Design (BOD) and Schematic Design Documents for a 37,500 sf naval operations center building. The Center program includes open and private offices, break room, training/classrooms, medical suite, locker rooms, restrooms, and administration support spaces. The project program requires compliance with LEED certification standards, Low-Impact Development (LID) principles, and stormwater management.
The Center design provides Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection features and physical security mitigation. Protection measures include mass notification systems, emergency shutoffs for ventilation systems, laminated windows, blast resistant window and door frames, and emergency lighting and signage. In preparation for the schematic design phase our AGS team participated in a 3-day design Charrette at Hill AFB, which included numerous air force military stakeholders which resulted in the develpment of the Support Center Plan.
