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.
