JBLM Child Development Center

This Child Development Center is designed to serve 195 children ages 6-10. The $9.5M, 20,000 square feet of building space provides for a commercial kitchen, administrative offices, classrooms and activity areas. The facility is LEED Gold certified and was awarded a Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Design Excellence Silver Award. A challenge of this project was that the RFP called for an HVAC system that was not within the project's budget. BCE analyzed the building's needs and proposed an alternate system that met all project requirements, including the budget, and also provided 30% energy savings over ASHRAE 90.1 standards.
