USACE, Building 3071
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design and commissioning services for the $9.9M renovation of the 45,000 SF building housing the DEVCOM headquarters. Built in the late 1930s and located in APG’s historic district, the building is a distinctive 2-story, U-shaped structure housing a variety of office and conference spaces. The “historic district” is a group of historic neoclassical buildings with stone and brick facades and slate roofs. It is located in the Campus Visual Zone and is a significant visual element within the Aberdeen Area (AA) of APG. It was a challenge to preserve the building’s architectural heritage while modernizing its systems and interior functionality.
The newly renovated building includes better noise control for privacy within individual offices, addressing critical adjacencies among leadership and support personnel; UFC compliant and meeting the NEC Energy Code, the Energy Conservation Code, IBC, CEHNC 110-1-1 Huntsville Center Design Manual, IES, NFPA, the technical criteria for the installation information infrastructure architecture (13A), and (SIPRNET) the technical guide for the integration of the Secret Internet Protocol Router Networks. The project was completed by relocating the DEVCOM staff to another facility while Building 3071 was completely renovated.
