Rain gardens. Transpiring solar collectors. Pollutant stripper wells. This new Army Reserve Center (ARC) is bursting at its insulated concrete form walls with sustainable design features. Built in the often-cloudy Pacific Northwest, the center features huge expanses of energy-efficient glass and solar tubes to maximize available daylighting and was designed to harmonize with the surrounding white pine forest.
GLMV designed this 120,000-square-foot facility at Joint Base Lewis-McChord near Tacoma, Washington, to support tactical operations, surgical, and food laboratories. The training center includes a medical simulation training room, SIPRNET training room, assembly hall, library and learning center, arms vault, kitchen, and physical fitness areas. The organizational maintenance shop features repair bays, a bridge crane, lubrication system, and tools and parts storage.
