Location: Camp Lejeune, NC
This design-build project, completed with W.M. Jordan Company, provides a headquarters facility in conjunction with a physical rehabilitation and fitness center at Camp Lejeune, NC. The goal of the Center is to provide a facility that inspires and supports the desire of injured and wounded Marines and Sailors to achieve their goal of rehabilitation and transition back to active duty or separation from active duty. The facility consists of two functional areas—an administrative support/resource center for the Wounded Warrior Battalion Marines, Sailors, and their families and a physical rehab/fitness center. The Battalion Headquarters/Administration facility is connected via a covered portico to the rehabilitative center.
The Hope and Care Center includes an indoor aquatics area with a therapy pool, lap pool, pool equipment spaces, locker rooms, dedicated HVAC system, human performance assessment area, therapy/workout areas with associated equipment, a climbing wall, and an indoor track. Administrative areas within the center include an informational resource library, a transition center, a call center, counseling offices, medical case manager offices, conference and training rooms and other administrative offices. This facility also includes a drive-up, covered personnel drop-off and loading area. Both the Battalion Headquarters and the Hope and Care Center are designed to withstand Category 3 hurricane wind velocities up to 130 MPH. The facility is LEED Gold certified.
