Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor shops building

Location: Silverdale, Kitsap County

General contractor: Washington Patriot Construction

Owner/developer: Naval Facilities Engineering Command Northwest

Primary designer: BOE Architects

This design-build project provided a new facility to house the relocated naval support operations of three existing Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility shop/storage facilities and an administration facility into one structure.

Unique features of the new building included a high-bay bridge crane, an indoor testing tower mezzanine, a level pad for testing requirements, and a secured work yard with lighting and blast-rating structural requirements. The project also included solar-power requirements, off-site parking improvements and off-site stormwater-management improvements.

On-site improvements included a change order to revise the culvert system in the original contract to comply with state Department of Fish and Wildlife fish-passage requirements. This included enhancing the overflow/bypass culvert under an adjacent street to make the culvert suitable for fish passage, and rerouting the stream from the existing headwall over to the new overflow/bypass culvert under the street.

The project integrated sustainable design strategies and features to achieve LEED silver certification.
